I just got my Dell Latitude CPxJ650GT & tried to install Redhat 6.2
wihtout the docking port & got essentially nowhere (blanks screen, or
one with some vertical lines in the case of 6.1), apparently
because of the LCD problem. The docking port is in the mail so
I should have it soon. Anyway since you're now experienced---for
better or worse---with Redhat 6.2 on this system, could you tell
(1) Did you ever get it to run correctly outside of
the docking station?
(2) If so, how?
(3) If so, how do you switch between the two?
