Hi guys and girls....I have an MSI K7N420 Pro motherboard and it uses the nForce chipset...So I figured the reason why my display and anyhting graphical wasnt working was because I dont have any drivers on linux...so I went to nvidias website got the red hat 7.3 drivers for nforce in .rpm format and put them on a disk...now I dont know how to get the drivers from the floppy onto linux and have it install the drivers or do what it does to them...any help would be greatl appreciated
hehe I have the same motherboard..and the same problem. I managed to install the drivers, but it didn't sort my problem out. The way I installed was as follows:
With the floppy in the drive (of course) and at the command prompt type:
mount /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy
rpm -i <filename>.rpm
Then when I rebooted, a screen came up telling me to configure the graphics card. But I still get a black screen when trying to boot into X. Please help!
