Hello fellow Computer enthusiasts (Nerds),

I have an Asus A7N8X Dlx and I have just installed Linux 9.0 and I cannot figure out for the life of me how to install the all-in-one drivers. In fact, I know next to nothing about Linux. How do I go about installing the Nvidia Nforce all-in-one drivers??? I'm well versed in Windows and MS babble but I know nothing about Linux. If anyone has any good learners manuals for Linux or newbie books or something to help me on my quest to setup and learn Linux, that would be most appreciated.

Thanks you
Sponsor

ok. Distro = distibrution, eg. :

Mandrake
Slackware
Debian
RedHat
Suse
Turbolinux

etc. The list goes on and on and on and on...

to install stuff on Linux, especially drivers, it's all done under a terminal window, like Konsole. You have to have root access though.

There is no simple executable.

to run a shell command (most likely what your NIVIDIA drivers are), type ls minus brackets, and go from there.

I think it's ls :confused:, aint done that for a while

no no no, it's sh sh = shell

I'm using mandrake 9.0

My linux drivers for the All-in-one Nforce 2 Chipset are the drivers that are on CD-ROM and came with the motherboard. How should I do this... I'm not familiar with Linux Mandrake Konsole Commands.

yeah i'm running Mandrake 9.0 as well. Off the CD might be a bit more difficult.

Is it like automated??? If it has CDsupport for Linux i'd think it'd be an auto install scripty for it or something. Detect the OS maybe. Browse as you normally would to the CD, and go into where the linux drivers are stored, and see if there's any "executables" in there.
