RE: Upgrading Xfree86

I'm also new to this but I got threw it. I've got the Rage Fury 128 
also. Got mine going but it wasn't easy. I went to 
ftp.rawhide.redhat.com to the i386 directory then to RedHat and 
down to RPMS. Downloaded all of the XF*.rpms to my hard drive. 
I then browsed to /var/tmp ( where I downloaded to ) and ran
rpm -i-v-h --replacefile --replacepkgs XF*.rpm. I then got some 
dependincy errors but I just backed out and I reninstalled the files 
that the dependencies referenced by reinstalling from the Redhat 
6.1 rpms. There may have been one or two files that I needed to 
get off of the ftp.rawhide.redhat.com site other than the XF*.rpm's. If 
the rpm install references a file thats missing just go get that rpm 
that the file is in and install. Just a word of caution. If you have a 
working Linux setup with important files then you probably want to 
backup your setup. I was playing ( i.e. starting from scratch ) so I 
didn't have anything to loose.  
I ran XF86Setup after I got past all of the RPM install errors. Works 
like a charm.
