X runs fine, thank you very much. No problems.

Slack Rocks... give it another chance.

Well i couldnt really give it much of a chance due to the fact that LiLO plus X was screwy. therefor i could not go into windows either. i asked for help here at LQ but it seems it was too late. i might try slack on my secondary ocmputer which is running a nvidia geforce3 ti 500.

make a boot disk and reload lilo after you have a working system. Or try grub. Lilo kind of sucks, and is difficult to get working if you have another boot loader in the mbr. Slack's pretty much as "core" as linux gets, so if you got x working in another distro, you can problably figure it out with slack. A friend of mine was having trouble with lilo not overwritting the windows loader. He ended up placing a small os/2 partition at the beggining of the disk and placing the loader there. Windows could recognize the partition and the loader.

Also, someone mentioned before that they had hyper-threading enabled? It's my understanding that ht actually slows performance for games. Just what i've heard...
