Tips : Install Mandriva Linux 2008.1 Free Edition On Acer Aspire 4520 Notebook

Mandriva is beautiful Linux Desktop. When I install this Linux on Acer Aspire 4520 there is not run correctly.

After install on the notebook, there go to Terminal. No KDE will appear. Only command prompt :(.
This happen because X windows detect invalid driver for this Notebook.

Type your root password.
2.Edit xorg.conf using vi.
