PNY VCG84512SPEB GeForce 8400 GS 512MB 64-bit GDDR2 PCI Card

hello again. i'm such a noob can someone please help me get this card detected?
the exact card is here: ... 6814133245
i'm attempting to boot the parsix 2.0_r0 test 2 i386 live cd. the first thing is says at boot is "Cannot allocate resource region 0 of device 0000:00:02.0" then goes through the motions and cannot start x server. there was a boatload of errors in the log. it seems to recognize the intel integrated graphics, which seems odd because i have disabled the AGP video in the BIOS and enabled the PCI.

the computer is 1.80 GHz pentium 4 with 640MB RAM + 80GB IDE HDD, 320GB IDE HDD.

i tried a few boot options at random (not knowing really what they mean) such as:

so yea i don't really know what i'm doing here :/

it booted fine when using failsafe video mode, and i installed parsix, but logging in to the installed parsix, it complained about no home directory or something..sorry i really should have written all this down, but i got some pictures.

the card works under the windows xp partition using the latest nVIDIA driver, so hardware malfunction is hopefully ruled out.

maybe there is a command i can enter to configure the x server? i tried a few like: x -configure, xorgcfg xorgconfig..which is the right command to configure x?

is there a magic boot parameter that will make parsix work with this video card?

Did you try VGA safe mode?
