    Well, I've got a PCI-Express slot on this motherboard, so if I'm gonna spend money on a graphics card, I'd like to get one that uses a PCI-Express slot. But I think there are a lot of nVidia cards that use PCI-Express... I'll just have to order it online.

    Just make sure it's one of these...they're the chips supported by the nVidia driver:

    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    I've been thinking about getting one of the GeForce 6600 boards, so that would work out well... Thanks for the listing!

    Well, I went home over my lunch break and tried everything suggested here (and @ linuxquestions.org). First I booted with the Windows install CD, went into recover mode, typed FIXMBR and then rebooted. That did not work. I still got the same lilo interface and when selected Windows XP I got the same error.

    So I booted with Knoppix and that actually did load into KDM, but it did not show my partition with my files on it, just the linux partitions, so I could not back anything up or recover anything.

    After that I booted with a CD called the "Ultimate Boot CD" which has a ton of recovery utilities. When I tried to recover my Windows partition it reported that the partition was empty... !!!

    I booted back into the Windows install CD and tried to go through the Windows installation. That asked me to select a partition to install to, and it liksted the three partitions on my C drive: 5GB with nearly 5GB free, 1GB with 1GB free and 193GB with 193GB free. Nothing was left on the drive. It looks like Mandrake thought when I selected "Use free space" that I meant "Use all the space"... So I lost it all. I'm hoping I can recover some of it off of my original boot drive from my old system. I'll try that tonight.

    I *MAY* try linux again, but if I do, I will install another HD just for linux, and I will NOT use Mandrake!!

    Thanks for all your help!
