Guidance needed

Hi! I finally took the plug and installed a Linux OS on my comp, 64 Studio of course. It's a dual boot machine and I can boot to 64 Studio, but I get a "No Devices Detected" and "No Screen Found" error messages. I know that there is a section on this site, Install Guide I believe, that talks about this, but I have absolutely no clue how to fix it. I've read that I need to update my driver, but I have no clue how to do that. I truly know nothing about Linux. Suggestions?

Vista + 64Studio Dual Boot Question

I have a Acer Dual-Core Vista contraption with one of those hidden recovery partitions that is accessible through hitting Alt+F10 at bootup. It has a 320MB SATA formatted with NTFS. Id like to use it to gain proficiency with 64Studio then give it to my Ma to store recipies when my new machine is ready. Have read about many issues regarding Linux+NTFS, dual booting, blowing out hidden partitions etc. so, is the following possible: 1. Install 64studio on a new (slave) harddrive. 2. Create a new volume on the master drive for Linux data, leaving the Vista and hidden partitions in tact. 3. Reliably set it up to dual boot using Grub, or EasyBSD or drive selection with BIOS config at bootup (need VPN access through Vista). 4. When finished, remove the slave drive, restore Vista (if blown), use the slave drive in my new machine. Also, what size drive is needed for the full 64Studio install (minus what is used for data)? Thanks in advance for any advice you can provide. I'm new to Linux, old to dos, PCs and PLCs.

Have you tried?

Fantastic! I'll keep an eye out for it if I don't figure it out by then.

As you can imagine there are parties that stand to loose a lot of business if the world would realize that Linux is a mature platform, and that you can do most everything on it that you can do on any other platform. Not tho mention that it is generally more stable, and that bugs get fixed ON DEMAND and not on "service pack". This is why hardware manufacturers are "encouraged" to make it as hard as possible for us to get the stuff going. Just think Electric car, and you know what I am talking about. Well, for the time being we are the lucky ones. I'd rather pay myself (in time) than pay some big software house for defective software. Good Luck,

I'll try what is suggested

I'll try what is suggested in that thread. I found a driver on ATI's site for my card on Linux OS's, but I have no idea how to go about updating the driver. It's surprisingly difficult for me to locate info on how to do that. This is probably why not many people bother with Linux. But, I'm stubborn and I'll eventually figure it out.
