    To backtrack: this server is a 350mhz dual PII with 384meg RAM and
about 14gig HD space. It was donated with RH 7.2 preloaded. All last
year it worked fine as a standalone and NFS/NIS server. Ever since I
decided to upgrade to K12LTSP running on RH 7.3 -- after about 8
attempts to reinstall with various packages -- it will not start X.
The message comes up "No screens found." Xconfigurator yields a
"Segmentation fault" error. Every possible video driver is loaded, and
I'm only trying to get it started in 640x480 8-bit mode.
    I don't know if it makes a difference, but during the installation
I did not accept the default size for the swap partition (twice the
memory). Since I plan to boost it to 512meg, I set aside a gig for
    I have tried 2 sets of K12LTSP disks and even attempted to just
load with the plain 7.3 disks I used successfully at home.
    Any ideas?
