I recently installed Corel Linux onto my computer as I was having display problems with Red Hat 6.0. Also, I am stuck with a winmodem and it is my only link to the internet at the moment. If I downloaded a Linux driver for my Nvidia card (there is one available on the Nvidia site) through windows, could I move that file to my linux partition and then unzip it? I'm not sure if there are any compatibility issues or if I need to access the site from Linux and download it directly into a linux directory. Basically the sooner I can get red hat running the sooner I can take corel off the system!

Yeah,go ahead and down load the file.When you install RH,it should setup mount points for you to access your windoze partition and retrieve the file.
PS get santa to bring you a cheap non winmodem
