    Hi,

    Could you post what video card you have? Is it a GEForce2?
    Also, could you post your XF86Config file? You can find it in /etc/X11/XF86Config or XF86Config-4

    Which driver did you downloaded??, because AFAIK nForce dont use the same driver as the rest of the Nvidias chipset, but i think nvidia have linux drivers for nForce chipset.

    Update:
    Ive found this on www.linuxgames.com, http://www.nvidia.com/view.asp?IO=linux_nforce_1.0-0241

    Another thing: I am in the process of recompiling my kernel. I applied the 2.4.20pre5 patch, the ac patch and the preemptive patch. One of those added a bunch of new chipset support to the kernel, including nForce. You might want to give that a try, since it may be easier than installing the driver from NVidia.
