Red Hat I know what you're thinking, but don't worry. This article isn't 'Yet Another Red Hat 8.0 Review'. This article is primarily about using Red Hat 8.0 if you happen to be a newbie, but it's also about using Red Hat 8.0 if you happen to be a KDE user. Why? I happen to be a KDE user, so it makes sense I'd focus more on what I know the most about. Plus, I still remember the frustration of staring with something akin to terror at a blank command line with lots of ideas about what I'd like to do and very little knowledge of how to do it.

i am a new linux user (tried mandrake 8 a year ago, left it)...every time i try to do the driver update, after i edit the xf86config file after i restart the xserver (alt/ctrl,bkspc) i get an error loading x. it takes me to a blue screen i try to edit using emacs but it never comes back...3 reinstalls later here i am again asking is there something i dont get?

did anyone else have this problem, and if i try to do this again and somehow screw it up again, what can i do to get back my gui w/o having to reformat???
