I am trying to load linux on my old trusty(?) compaq LTE 5000 (P75/40/2G). The graphics card is probed as a "GD754x" with 1mb of video RAM.
While I dont pretend to know much about xwindows I am getting the impression that it is not supported under redhat 7.3 with xfree86 4.2. (only version of linux I had on-hand)
So, my questions -
1) Does anyone know if it will be supported under xfree86 3.x.x?
2) Assuming that it works under xfree86 3.x.x - is it possible to downgrade xfree86 on redhat 7.3?
2) Which version of linux (redhat or otherwise) should I load? (ie does anyone have one out there running linux happily?)
Hope someone can help as I would hate to have to load win98 on it again... :-(
Thanks in advance...
