Default GeForce2 MX and Red Hat 9?

I have a GeForce2 MX in my Compaq and wish to install Red Hat 9.
Will I be able to run X? If not, another Linux that will?

TIA

Ken

Any modern distro will detect a GF card just fine. They take varying
degrees of work to get 3D acceleration working though. I am not sure
on RH9 in that respect.

Yep should work fine out of the box but if you need 3D & Open GL then you just
need to visit nvidia and d/load the driver, pretty easy to install just run
the binary.
