    Hey all, first the server specs. Pentium 2 400Mhz, 256MB SDRam, 10GB hard drive, no graphics card.

    Right, story goes. I put my Geforce 2 MX 400 64MB ram in the server so I could install SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 8 (got that free kit from novell) and I installed it great.

    I think it was on post install it asked me if I want to enable 3d acceleration, I clicked yes (wish I hadn't now) and it said I got to do some stuff in order for it to work. So now Xfree86 does not work when I do startx.

    Of course the graphics card is out now so I boot up and can SSH in but I would like to set-up tightvnc so I can view the desktop. Any ideas on how to rerun the post install script without reinstalling, I might have to install Xfree86 again I don't know since I'm really newb at linux. Thanks if you can help out.
