Where is this spec sheet? And if it is in the reconfigure utility, how do I
print it out if I cannot get it to boot up correctly? Is it available
somewhere online where I can get to it via windows?
I did answer the questions about my monitor in the reconfigure utility, but
that did not help. I got close when I disabled dri and int10. It booted up
into x and then x crashed and kept trying to restart and crash. It would
say, "It has stopped x number of times in the last 2 minutes"

Are you saying some of my questions are arcane? How can I be more specific.
I would really like to get this to work, but nothing now.
