Thanks very much for the info. Being a newbie, I am a little confused about this process.
How exactly do I boot to the console rather than to X?
In order to manually install the video driver, I assume that I would use Lynx to download the driver, and then install the driver as an RPM or perhaps by extracting it from a tar file. Is there an easier way?

you need to do a custome install and have the system boot directly to console not to X. Once there you can do a manual install of the updated driver. Your not the only one with nvidea problems. My local lug went through a week long discussion on that.

I recently tried to do a fresh install of 8.1 Professional from the install CDs. The install process appeared to go normally (no obvious error messages). Although I noticed that the install CD contained an older version of the nVidia driver for my GeForce4 video card. After the install completed, I tried to boot the system. The boot went normally until late in the boot process when the screen flickers and the video driver starts. At that point, the boot process stopped and the screen went black. I tried to boot the system several times with the same results. (I finally gave up and installed 8.0, which which booted successfully.) Has anyone experienced this problem with 8.1 or know how to solve it? Thanks very much for your help.
