Hello guys.

I am new to linux. I recently install Linux 7.2 I have a problem with my VGA card (ATI 3D Rage Pro AGP 2X). During Installation I choose Gener because my vga card is not on the list. please tell me how to detect any hardware and how to install there apropriate drivers.

And also tell me the Linux 7.2 Command which used on text (Shell, Console, and other)

Best regards,

Major General

you can use setup commnad if you are using rh 7.2 to configure various hardware including vga. I used the said chip at rh 7.2 and it works fine for me. try to install rpms of ATI/Mach packages first before executing setup (i dont remember the exact name).
A: Yes
