Xwindows GURU-

I am running RedHat 6.2 on a 750AMD duron w/ 64mb.
I was having problems with the video card, an ATI
pro rage, Xwindows did not seem to work at all. Then
I swapped w/ a voodo3dfx 3000 AGP. Xwindows works but
it is very,very slow. It seems like its not reading or
writting to the video ram because every time I click
a window, or move a window the HD goes nuts.
I tried to find a driver for my videoCard but every
where I look, I hit a dead link! Can I fix this problem
with out buying RedHat 7.2?

you may want to try a newer version of xfree86.
