Anybody in here run Mandrake with an ATI Rage Fury Pro 32MB video card? When I first tried Linux it was hard to set up X server because XFree86 really wasn't supporting the card yet. However, I haven't really tried the later versions of Mandrake. Anybody know if I'll have better luck this time around?

It looks like your video card is supported and with acceleration. SPAMGive it a try. SPAMMandrake 8.0 includes the newer xfree86, and it seems to do a better job with video cards. SPAMHere is the url where I got the information concerning video cards that are supported http://www.xfree86.org/4.0.3/Status6.html#6

Good luck and have fun.

Thanks for the info tex! Actually, I just downloaded Mandrake 8.0 from the website last night and saw the new list of graphics cards supported by XFree86. SPAMI hope things will go a little smoother this next time around.
