I own a gateway laptop that is about 2 years old with a xpress 200m ati graphics card. The processer speed is single core 1.8ghz with 1 gig ram. connected to a Gateway 15" CRT monitor because I need to get around to putting the laptop screen back on as it came off when the laptop took an unfortunate bump while out in the field.The problem that I seemed to run into is when I tried to install the ati drivers so that I could play my emulators that are on the windows part of the hard drive.
I looked through the forums trying to find things that might be able to help even went to how to install the Ati graphics with fedora 10 that was posted by leigh123linux. I followed the steps in order and it looked good as it went through and updated and set up what it needed. When I did a reboot I had two fedoras up one was fedora 188.8.131.52-170.2.68.fc10.I686
the other was the original fedora 184.108.40.206-170.2.56.fc10.I686
I didn't think any of it till I tried to first run the fedora 2.68.fc10.I686 it gave me the error 15: file not found I hit the enter key to return back to the boot in screen and went to click on the 2.56fc10.I686 and it went to a blank screen. I am new to actually using linux so maybe I screwed up somewhere while following the step by step guide that leigh123linux had up.
I can access the Grub menu but don't know how to actually use it to possibly fix the issue that I am having. is there a way to show the whole linux set up through grub? Even if I can just undo the leigh123linux step by step guide for getting ati to run and get back to the vga screen where I can set resolution I would be happy. Course I would be happier if I could actually use the ATI driver that is most current so I could play my emulated games that I own as well as set up other things that I find useful and helpful.
I have looked through many posts in the forums and none of them seemed to have the right answer course being busy as I am I might be missing the right post that would help me to solve my problem.
Any and all help would be great to help this old dog learn some new tricks.
