graphic card problem


Hi everyone, few days ago I used to work with a ATI Radeon 7500 graphic card under fedora core 2, but I've replaced that graphic card for a Nvidia FX5200 graohic card, I've installed the graphic card and once that the kernel boots, the system it's unable to start the x server, I can only work under text mode. I've check the xorg.conf file and I've seen that it configured according to ATI Radeon Graphic card and I sincerely don't know how to configure it according to the Nvidia FX500 graphic card, can somebody tell me how do I fix this please. Thanks !

You're going to be running a completely different driver, which is your problem.

Since you seem to be fairly familiar with installing drivers and whatnot, you might want to see if this tutorial can get you going in the right direction. The 5200 works flawlessly on Linux (I'm using it right now believe it or not ) and if you still have trouble, I'll be glad to help.
