ok, i have been looking though the guids and i have been using windows my hole life and im just starting to understand the basics of linux..... if i can get xfree86 working with nVIDIA and have some dual screen options then i might not bother getting a windows xp disk to fix my computer....
when i read the guids for this app.. i just get confused and it all seems so complicated... even from the mydsl app info file for xfree86 confuses me....
so is there a super windowsnoob guide to getting xfree86 to work?...
or is it posible for somone to explain some of the complicated steps involved?
edit: isnt it posible for sombody to make a .dsl download that does everything itself?... i guess you would still have to do some configuring when linux is booted....
edit II: even this confuses me:
This package contains the XFree86 X-server, many video and input drivers. openGL drivers driver info: http://www.xfree86.org/4.3.0/Status.html
THIS IS NOT A CLICK AND PLAY PACKAGE.
You need to add 2 files.
exec /usr/X11R6/bin/XFree86 -nolisten tcp
