I have just bought a new computer, and it rocks, well, sorta. Under linux, I am having some problems with my new video card. The problem is that I couldn't be bothered to attempt to install the drivers for it, because I have had some bad driver installation experience with Linux. Its a new S3 UniChrome 3D/2D card, and I can only get it to work as a Vesa! That means, no gaming under linux. I have to install Windows just to play some games! I want to take advantage of the new system under Linux, but I cant. Does anyone else have some hardware that doesn't run under Linux properly?

Seriously, I would reccomend putting fourth that extra bit of change for some kind of video card. An nVidia GeForce FX 5200 128MB would only set you back ~$50 and the difference between an AGP video card with dedicated memory and some onboard GFX chip will blow your mind. Also, you just cant beat nVidia's driver support in Linux.
