Also, it's probably not useful, but for brevity, I should mention that despite the fact that Ubuntu 6.10 worked flawlessly for me as installed out of the box, it was a different story with the Slackware that I now use.
Nvidia's website told me (at least the way I read it) that I should use the 97xx driver. The problem, as I mentioned earlier, is that the product compatibility list does not break down into groups of drivers vs. hardware. Anyways, I ended up downloading 3 different nvidia drivers from their website before finally landing on the correct one that worked under slackware.
It happens to be the x86-9631 version.
I don't know what driver the Ubuntu was using, but it seemed to work well, with the exception that my screen resolution was so huge, like almost 1800x 1600 or something ridiculous like that..

I guess I will check that nvidia linux forum. I guess I just need to know which driver is best.

Recovery mode doesn't load X and places you at the command line. At the command line:

sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf

This is a simple editor without mouse support and all of its commands are shown at the bottom of the display.

I used Nano fine, thanks.

If I just used the driver listed at that site and it doesn't work, I can just do a reconfigure, so might do that. Too bad that one in Synaptic didn't work.

I talked to people on 2 other sites and they both said that this driver is the one that I need to use.

OK then... Must figure out how the heck to get it installed and working.. LOL, start at the beginning of the thread.
I think everything I can possibly input, is in this thread already, but if there is some further obscure thing I can do to try and help...

Sound?

Did anyone get the sound working on this board (Abit NF-M2S) in Ubuntu? I'm using Kubuntu Dapper and it's just not showing up. The mixer tool says there is no mix device found. I have tried setting it to use ALSA, OSS, etc. but to no avail. Someone mentioned it should already be supported in the kernel but do I need to upgrade the kernel or something? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
