Hi,

   I recently changed my display card, Geforce FX 5200(new), I have found the linux driver in http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp, and but i don't know which one should i download?
My computer is running Redhat linux 9.0, I don't know linuxIA32 or linuxIA64 which should i download, And How do i uninstall the old one and install new one using command prompt?

Even i installed sucessfully, but it seems that have to edit the X86Config file as appropriate. It still can't display Xwin. How to do that?

ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/1.0-5336/README gives detailed instructions. The file you need to edit is /etc/X11/XF86Config

If you have the pine mail client installed you can use pico as an easier editor than vi. But Glen is right about vi - its installed by default on all unix systems and is therefore well worth learning. The most important commands for you to know are - press escape and then :qw return
That will exit vi and save the changes to your file. Pressing escape and then :q! return will exit vi without saving the changes. Oh and you have to press i for insert before you can write anything at all :)
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

Even though I still love emacs, I'd have to agree... I seldom have the time to bother with anything but vi... and with vim, most irritating limitations/stupidities are just...gone:-).
