In that case, you may as well do a fresh install. bear in mind what Titan said though, in most situations (ie where you use the OS as your regular box) the installer can be told to just upgrade where needed.RP Racing said:Dont keep anything in linux, yet. Just dabbling in it. I want to build a new computer specifically for linux only.

You will still have to modify your video settings under /etc/X11/XF486.confg with vi or emacs video =nv would have to be changed to video = nvidia
I think the kernel sources are located on the 3rd CD.
This is if you want open gl 3d graphics rendering. Quake and Unreal Tournament 2003 both rock in Linux dood.

dyefade said:I installed Mandrake 9 as normal, no kernel sources. Then when I wanted to use OpenGL, I installed the nVidia drivers from the nVidia website, then changed the /etc/X11/X[something, guess it must've been F486].confg file by hand. I know that he'd have to install the kernel modules from the source if he wanted kernel support for his card but what's wrong with using the drivers?
NB, I'm fairly n00bish to this... please enlighten me if I've missed/said something stupid...
