is it possible for me to achieve a 32 bit graphics with this hardware?


i am currently using this motherboard, k7n2 delta ilsr from msi. this is an nforce2 mobo w/ dual channel memory support. and my video card is a leadtek winfast a250 le td myvivo (ti4200 128mb).

i found out that there is no matching driver in the display list during the solaris 9 instllation. consequently, i cannot get a fairly good grahics out of my hardware setup.

is it possible for me to still achieve better graphics (32-bit) with my hardware?
