i'm taking this offlist so i don't show my totsl ignorance about
running X11 and my new intel duo with i386 and 7.2.
do i need a nvidia card to run X? the graphics show the dell
circle just before the boot sequence but that may be built into the
(another reason for keeping this offlist is that my network pal says
to NOT run X on my server ... simply for the sake of simplicity. i
will not use the computer for anything except CTWM for root, which
will make doing sysadmin tasks vastly easier. nutshell: if i do need
a video card for my dell inspiron 530, what kind?
