I know, it's frustrating to keep harping on the problem but it doesn't appear to be something I'm doing weird. I certainly don't have the knowledge that many have here but I've followed along the advise being given with nothing working so far.

I tried an install of mythbuntu yesterday. For some reason, with the 220gt card installed in the machine, that distro worked for the first time. It would never work when I had the fx5200 installed on two machines I've been using to build.

Thanks for the lead, I'll look at it in case I've missed something.

I'm not sure why you would offer good advise, try to help, then have this to say at the end. Doesn't make much sense. It's not like I'm not aware that I've been having a difficult time at this and I'm trying to handle it tongue in cheek, trying to stay positive that I can get part this problem, what ever it is. 

You know, those of you who don't want to help sure as hell don't have to. It's a freaking mailing list, just reply to what you want to. If I'm overstayed my welcome with some of you, deal with it, I'm not going anywhere, just don't answer my questions. The rest of you who are great people, I still welcome your help and am trying hard to learn which has been difficult because of this one nasty problem that doesn't go away, so far.
