display driver for Intel G31 for RH9
 
can anybody help me by providing Intel G31 display driver for Red Hat 9 (kernel 2.4x).
the driver CD with the hardware package not included with the linux driver. i think the hardware is pretty new thats why driver is not available yet in any linux forum

What possessed you to install Red Hat 9? It's obsolete now and you'd be better off installing a new, supported distribution. One reason is that your hardware will most likely be better supported..

If you want to use legacy software, the best option would be to run it on an older machine from around that time, or from a virtual machine.

There isn't much of a chance of such an old kernel working well with new hardware, it works great with new kernels though.
