    Set Driver to "nv". Have you installed Nvidia Driver?
    Which Distro do you have?
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Thank you very much. It works. My Distro is Fedora Core 6

    But to start xserver it takes 60 secs, I think it is too much time.

    How can I make it little faster.

    I have 256 MB RAM
    and 128MB VGA (Nividia) card RAM.

    Thanking You

    You should install Nvidia Driver. Open Terminal/Konsole and execute this
    Code:
    lspci | grep VGA
    ls /etc/yum.repos.d
    Post output here.
