    Yes is does support it.....
    FC3-x86_64-disc1.iso (md5sum: b61b0eb7e0171837aeeff4f0054a4d79)
    FC3-x86_64-disc2.iso (md5sum: 99dc12c7e8a93844a48a5675a9c07ec9)
    FC3-x86_64-disc3.iso (md5sum: 399b7ffd721ebb4244a02c34cdbb1b82)
    FC3-x86_64-disc4.iso (md5sum: f58b1de3b880df55dbbd37d143419226)

    In windows(?) Start --> All Programs --> Accessories --> System Tools --> System Information

    I assume that is what you are asking...

    Should be located under Display Adapters. You can view it in control pannel (Display-->Settings-->Advanced) if you need to.

    i still dont understand what corresponds to what in

    section device:
    identifer:
    driver:
    vendor name :
    board name :



    it says VIA/S3 Graphics
    driver is via/s3g unichromeII graphics

    i dont know what the board name is
    and vendor name is


    i am even worried if there is a difference between
    "VIA/S3G UNICHROMEII GRAPHICS"
    "via/s3g unichromeII graphics"
    "VIA/S3G UniChromeII Graphics"



    and tel me how to find the board name

    "Vendor name" is not important: it's only for us humans. I'm not sure about "Board name", but it might be the same. "Driver" is the important part. Have you tried running the configuration programs? Try:
    Code:
    #  XFree86   -configure
    You must be root to do this. The new configuration will be written to the /root directory. Read the screens for guidance. You may also be able to run
    Code:
    #  xf86config
    Copy your current (even if broken) xorg.conf under a different name for future reference. Linux commands and file names are case sensitive, so in both commands above, pay attention to case of letters.
    /IMHO
    //got nothin'
    ///this use to look better
