You are right, the CentOS version 5 does not support the video driver
of the Intel graphic chipset. The FC9 works fine. Now the question is
where can I download video driver for CentOS 5? Or, is there anything
I can do to work around to resolve this problem? I have to use this
version of CentOS which our development was based on.

Thank you.

Kind Regards,
