Unhappy


I have installed Red Hat 6.0 on a 500Mhz P3, partition andinstallation went fine but the only problem is that the resolution seems to be stuck at the default and the OS is unusable in this format. I think the video card is at fault as I couldn't find a match for it during the installation. The card I'm using is an nVidia Riva TNT2 with 32megs. Would a more up to date version of Redhat or any other version of the os have this card as a pre-selectable option?
Also, I had to enter the details for the monitor myself as it was also unlisted. I am new to Linux and would appreciate any feedback on these matters.

You need to download the nVidia driver. You can find it here - http://www.nvidia.com/Products.nsf/h...e_drivers.html
