Re: Installing Linux Red Hat 9.1

probably you're speaking about RH linux 9.

And regarding VMWARE - as far as I remember, you need to install some "VMware Tools package" for linux

Re: Installing Linux Red Hat 9.1

Red Hat has a limited number of hardware configuarations that it supports.

If the generic monitor does not work for you then X-Windows is out of the question.

You could do a text based install and do everything from the comamnd line, no X at all. That would prevent you from using any of the cool GUI apps.

The first thing I always do before installing Red Hat is check hardware support at the manufacturer of the PC and http://www.redhat.com

Re: Installing Linux Red Hat 9.1

I recommend you to use Connectix Virtual PC instead of VM. I had lots of problems with VM regarding X-server but none with Virtual PC.

Luck.
