You think you have it bad thereís no video X window drivers for my radeon 7500. It's command line Linux all the way for me. As for your sound card just pick up and old SoundBlaster card they seem to work fine with Linux and your can usually find one for dirt cheap.
Its not software piracy. Iím just making multiple off site backups.

cwk9 -> I had the same trouble with each of my radeon boards and older versions of X. To fix it : get yourself the newest version of Xfree86 (4.2.0?) at http://xfree86.org. Make it and install it. Once installed, run "XFree86 -configure" This should create the file /root/XF86Config.new - copy/ move this to /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/XF86Config (or to the respective location of your config file). Modify ~/.xinitrc to point to the startup script of your favorite desktop manager. This should get you around your lack of graphical support.
tenguzero -> I unfortunately don't have the experiences you do with the hardware you have.. Best of luck.
