It's me again.....  I would guess the problem is with the video card.
Xconfigurator : When entering X configuration, i got a probelm configuring my video card. I entered all information correctly, but the X cannot finish it somehow... my vga : GeForce2 MX ........ it probes and tells me that there is a problem with my X server or X configuration.........
I need some quick help

When i run Xconfigurator I get this

PCI probing found a:

PCI Entry: NVIDIA
X Server : none

How do i find the X server for the NVIDIA geForce 2 card and how do i install it.
Thanks

You may try to specify a lower specification card at this point until you find the exact match to your specific card.

Good Luck,

This course will introduce you to C++ 11 and teach you about syntax fundamentals.

 
jlevieCommented:
I think you need a later version of XFree86 for that card. The current version of XFree86 (4.1.0) lists that card as being supported, but I think there were problems with the earlier 4.0.x releases. You can get the current version from http://www.xfree86.org/
