I'm absolute dummy in Linux, but I need to use it.
So, if there an expert that could explain step by step
how co configure ATI 3D Expression+PC2TV video card (4Mb)
to run X Windows at least in standard VGA mode.
My monitor is Samsung SyncMaster 3NE.
Thank you.

If you get the latest Redhat or Mandrake distro, this card is auto-detected during install, all you will have to do is pick the monitor.

You should run XF86Setup. It is a nice graphical interface to
ConfigXF86. Before you set up your mouse, though, you have to
use the arrow keys to move around. Set the mouse first, then
type 'a'. This will save the mouse config, and after that,
you can use it.

      Go through the screens and click on what you want. Its
very easy. You should, however put your vertical and horizontal
timings (in the Monitor section) in manually. Your screen will
look better.

      Another thing is to make sure you actually have the server that the progam automatically fills in for you when
you click on your card selection.

      Click on done when you are finished. The program will
try to start the server. If you get an error message and no
server comes up, try changing the server to the standard XFree
VGA server. If this works, then the problem was with the
programs server selection. Hope this helps, although it is not
very 'step by step'
