Unable to use GUI interface with RedHat Enterprise WS with Intel 82865g
Attempting to use RedHat Enterprise WS on a HP DC 5000 workstation while in VMWare, however, there is not driver to select during the installation process. I did select a different driver, but of course it doesn't work. PLEASE Help!

Welcome to LQ. What driver are you looking for specifically? If it's the video driver, the Intel site offers a Linux driver however I would guess you would need to install it manually.

Alternatively, what drivers are being shown to you during the installation, which one did you pick, etc? -- J.W.

Sorry it has taken me so long to reply..

The graphical insterfaces that are possible to select are (for Intel):
Intell 5430
Intel 740 (generic)
Intel 810
Intel 815
Intel Express 3D AGP

Pick either vga or svga. This is what VMWare howto saids to do. After installation, boot into runlevel 3. Next you can install VMWare's vga driver for Linux.

Hello, I have exactly the same problem with my computer.
I have a Windows XP host (with graphic card intel 82865g) with VMWare 4.0 and a Linux Redhat 7.1 in guest OS.
If i force the boot on the level 5, after linux boot, the screen switch between logon prompt and a stripped multi-color screen.
Where can i find the vmware'vga driver?
I have downloaded driver for linux on the intel web site under the .rpm and .tar.gz format but nothing run.

Can you help me.

Thanks in advance.
