I have a Dell Dimension 4300 Desktop. 20 gig Maxtor 5200 HD, ATI Radeon 9000 pro w/tv out 128 ddr 4/8x AGP, Microsoft Intellia Optical 5 button mouse, 15" Dell E551c monitor, Sound Blaster Live Value 5.1,. I got the latest drivers from ATI's website for Linux (not using them in this config I don't think, just using radeon)

Hope this helps fellow Linux newbs.

Nice work folks, wasnt an easy problem to solve, but by the sounds of it, it hasnt put you off linux which is good.

Remember and post up your config for all future users with the same probs.. I dont have the prob or anything cause I used nvidia but its always handy for others.
