Using a 14 year old Microsoft product that hasn't seen an update in 4 years is beyond dumb. Especially if it's connected to the Internet. At that point, you're an unacceptable risk that should know better.

Never mind. I found an Nvidia 7600GT graphics card by ASUS on eBay for about $14.00 on eBay. But aside from that, I thought that this forum was supposed to help us, NOT belittle us.

Why not just use unetbootin?  That's how I installed it.

The page you want is:
They are available as rpms or debs, so you'll need to convert the packages.  There's also an srpm so you can pull the sources out of that to build a VL package if you want.

Hey, Locater,...

I have an old PIII I keep around for the grandkids when they come.  It's running W2Kpro,...since I have dozens and dozens (or more) old dos and windows games on it for the kids.  I'm running an old Nvidia in it (can't think exactly which one just now).  But I had the old driver on a CD for it.   I think a lot of the older 2-dimension cards will work fine with W2k (like Matrox Millinium).  That's one of the old cards that I had in it, before I added the Nvidia.  (Got my Nvidia off of Ebay).

Yeah,...I use Vector for all the important stuff on my main computer,...but for all those old dos and windows games for the grandkids, I use an older windows.  Got wine on the Vector box, and can run some nice win games on it for the kids, as well.

EDIT:  The Nvidia card I have in the PIII W2k box is a ...Geforce4 Mx 440  AGP8x.  Had to use an older driver for it.  But it works really well.

At present the 7.1 testing repository isn't used, and it looks like it will remain that way through the release cycle. This is an intended change; later RC's ship without the http version of the testing repo even mentioned in slapt-getrc. The untested repo is there, but commented out in such a way that it can be uncommented only by direct edit -- not via GSlapt. I assume that's also intentional because the rest of the disabled repos have the "#DISABLED" tag that GSlapt latches onto.

The 7.1 testing repo is empty. Note that this does not apply to 70 which still uses testing.
