Hi

I am a relatively experienced linux user.  I currently have a default build of 7.3 running for a very long time.  My current XFree config is straight forward and uses the video card built in the motherboard which setup auto sensed.  I now would like to upgrade to a dual head system.  The MOST important thing is not to have to mess around with rebuilding the system as I cant bring the system down for too long.  Can anyone suggest what brand and model of video card (PCI) I should buy in order that this exercise will just be putting in the card and re-running xfree86config?

The target monitors will be 2 standard (ie cheap and cheerfull) 17" flat screen.

Many thanks
David

Hi dmonheit,

   The most well-supported PCI graphic card in Linux is ATI rage (or rage pro). The card is PnP for RedHat 7.3 and can save
you a lot time to recompile the driver and XFree setting if you chose some other new graphic card.

Good luck,

Wesly
