I decided to go ahead and install fedora core again today, I'm not sure exactly what version it is (I don't think it's fedora core 5) I'm dual booting that and XP pro. All seems to be going pretty well except for a few problems... I have an audigy 4 pro sound card, linux detects it, and give me the "sample sound" but I can't hear anything. Creative has no linux drivers on their website for this card either. Another problem is nvidia graphic drivers. I have 3 choices on the nvidia site for linux. IA32, IA64, and Linux AMD64/EM64T. Now as I said before I'm not sure which version of fedora core this is, but I don't think it's completely 64-bit, so I would guess to download the "IA32" I download it to the desktop and double click it to install it. But I get an error saying it couldn't open because gedit was not able to automatically detect the character coding...etc. It gives me the same error with IA64 as well. So I try to install it through terminal by typing "sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8762-pkg1.run" but that doesn't work either. Help would be great. thanks.
