Angry Dell Latitude C840 RedHat 7.3


I am a newbie to Linux. I am running RedHat 7.3 Pro on a Dell Latitude C840.
Does anyone know how to get my X windows to work with a NVIDIA GeForce4 440 Go (Dell Mobile)?
You help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Mikey

Nvidia Drivers aren't built into X all that well, Nvidia produces their own Linux drivers for their cards, and actually does a brilliant job of it. Check out this link:

Im getting there

I have the drivers loaded, but which monitor do I choose under Xconfig?
My properties under winXP says I have a Dell M.
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Whatever the "define your own" is under the config you are using and grab your monitor's stats (HorizSync and VertRefresh) right off of the Dell site or from the manuals that came with the machine.

Cheers,
