Well, the thing was I had the i386 version on here and it worked fine
with the video card. Then again, it had the driver already on here from
a previous GeForce card. I can't install the binaries yet or drop down
to a console. The install wasn't completed. It's trying to get me to
the post-install config. When I drop down to the 1st console, all it
shows me is some of the services it's started and that's it. I can't
do anything more there except ctrl-alt-del. Something I meant to ask in
the first e-mail (and forgot) was, how do you get init 3 started with
grub (and since it's in the post-install phase, will it work?)?
Hmm....Maybe I'll just download FC4-test and see what happens.
