This is a post to help others with a simple solution to a problem that took me a while to figure out.

When installing Knoppmyth with a NVIDIA GeForce 6200 video card and an analog monitor, the display would go very dim. It was hardly readable with the brightness turned all the way up.

The solution is to use the digital monitor out on the back of the video card with the analog adapter. This will give you a normal display. Obviously the analog monitor out on the back of the card is not the primary with the included Linux drivers.

That's a pretty cool diagnoses & fix :), but this probably belongs in the "hints & tips" section. Depending on which installation section you chose Cecil may clobber this as "off-topic".

I've copied the content to the appropriate troubleshooting page on the wiki so it won't get lost.

No... I'll just ponder why I even bother with a 'Hints and Tips' as I sink deeper depression....

I've come to the conclusion that many people fail to recognize even the most standardized organizational schemes (e.g - "alphabetical by title" or "alphabetical by author's last name"), and when the organization is something custom even conscientious people will miscategorize based on descriptions at least until they see enough examples.
