    Two simple questions.....


    I need to install my vidcard drivers, and I am a total noob, so how do I enter the console and kill x or enter console without having started x?

    Also what do I do (under Gnome) to get a list of my hardware (like to when I right click on "My Computer" and click properties, and device manager in Windows?)

    Thanks in advance.

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
