Hi Vikram!
I have tried that also, and as I think I have said I tried to call it video, same thing, then xf86config.video, etc.

Someone else in another newsgroup suggested using Mandrake Control Centre which is supposed to be accessed by writing "drakconf" at the console but when I do so I get a 
bash: drakconf: command not found
Then someone else said that I had to log in as /root and that I could do so by typing "su" then entering my password but when I do so I get this:
su: incorrect message.
Any clue? Thanks in advance. I really appreciate your effort.
