      First, download the i75olnxf.rpm file from the Dell drivers web site
      closest to you.

      From LILO you can write

      > linux vga=791

      or just add it to your /etc/lilo.conf file.

      I don't know how much the users here know obout Linux so here is some
      more help. If you copied the rpm to a floppy you might have to mount
      the floppy drive as well and then access it. To do this..

      mount -t msdos /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy


      cd /mnt/floppy

      The rpm-file you just got at the Dell pages just gets forced in using
      the following command.

      rpm -ivh i75olnxf.rpm --force

      Works well.
