wow!! i've never gotten linux online with 56k before! this is the first time i've actually had a hardware modem that i could get linux to recognize..so i'm officially online in linux for the first time since i left college back in may. its nice to be back! redhat 8 recognized my USR modem with a sinch...this roxors so much. now to go try do get my 3d acceleration working...anyone wanna give me some pointers?

i got the nvidia drivers installed with little to no pain at all. it was a LOT easier than i expected it to be...in fact, i'm about to make a huge post about getting nvidia to work in rh8 since nvidia has only released official drivers for up to rh7.3 thus far.

i can't take credit for it (got the info from the nvidia forums) but if someone here can benefit from it then thats good.

My biggest w00t came when i got my winmodem working in 7.2. Those were the days. I can't wait to go deeper into linux. I want to become a l337 h4x0r. (not really, i just want to know linux in and out)
