Hi all,

I am currently trying to help my brother get Linux working on his 
Pentium 200 computer using Redhat 5.1... Unfortunately he seems to have 
an unsupported video card - a Diamond Stealth II S220 with 4mb RAM... I 
have tried generic XServers as well as other Diamond Stealth XServers, 
but I can't seem to get it to work... it won't recognise the video 
card... Linux itself is installed fine, but as I can't get XWindows to 
operate... he wants to use Linux + Netscape to maintain his web-site and 
basically to operate the Internet... he's not a Unix guru by any chance, 
so I am suggesting to him that he use Redhat's netcfg tool to connect up 
ppp, since it is a very easy product to use - rather than messing around 
with text files and so on.... however unless I can get the XWindows to 
work, I'm in a bit of a bind.... Does anyone have any ideas?
