Red HAt 9.0 and GeforceFX 5600
I have a problem with Chaintech Geforce FX 5600, with 256 Mb DDR.
I install Linux through the text interface. The automaticaly selected driver for my card is VESA. When I try to boot to Red Hat Linux 9.0, when X is loading, my monitor turns into sleep mode, and I can't do nothing.
My system:
Athlon 1333
chipset: Via KT133
521 Mb SDRAM
20 Gb 7200 RPM for Linux.

I hope you can help.

I have had this problem

boot: linux text

DO NOT INSTALL X (for packages), and Skip X Config at the end of the install.

a much simpler solution is to run the install. After the install is done boot to the first cd and load the recovery mode. In a command prompt mount your filesystem, go to /etc/X11/ and edit XF86Config and change the line that says vesa to nv. Reboot and you'll be fine.
