How to get 6800GT (AGP) to work?
Can't seem to find a graphics card selection that will actually work. Of course when I test one, I'm now stuck in a mode not supported by the monitor (or card) and can't do anything at that point..
Graphics card is an ASUS 6800GT (model V9999GT)
How do I back out of a botched test? How do I at least get generic VGA monitor support?????

As root, you can edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf so that in the "Device" section, the Driver is "nv". That should get you a rudimentary X server. From that point, I'd recommend going to Nvidia's Web site and downloading the Linux drivers so you can get good resolutions and 3D support.Stand up and be counted as a Linux user!
