I just installed RH 5.1 on my pentium 90 with win95 on a separate hard drive (system commander) and am having the following problems:
1)When I boot up it says it detected an ATI busmouse and is installing it, I have a Microsoft inport busmouse. I believe that because of this, gpm and xwindows both give me fatal errors when i run them.
2)I have aol and seflin when i try to dial-up seflin it just hangs up. it doesn't ask me for a login or password.
Thanks in Advance

Good Luck
