installing vendor supplied drivers problem

Hello there :),

I have installed ReactOS on an old Dell Dimension 2400 2.4 GHZ computer, it installs and boot properly, but runs very slowly :(.

Now i noticed that it can handle Nidia cards and drivers so i put a Geforce FX 5200 PCI card in it, but when i try to install the Vendor supplied drivers it does the following:

1. app freezes on screen before the window is painted
2. remains locked on the desktop, now way to end the program as a task
3. the mouse still moves freely, but everything else is unresponsive.

i also the same reaction when trying to run some general purpose apps i made a few years ago with Rapid Q beta 5.

if some one can help me out i would appreciate it, as i think this system has promise and would like to very much use it for playing my old windows Sim games (not sims - sims makin magic, but sim earth,sim ant ect)

Thanks in advance for any help.

You must install nivida drv manual in reactos

You can not install drv direcly in reactos yet.
