Unhappy Newbie Debian Install Problem


I'm a complete newbie to Debian Linux (although I've been using and programming computers for about 10 years).

I'd like to install and run Debian on my PC that currently runs Windows98/2000, mainly because I'd like to eventually use Demudi (the Debian-based multimedia distribution).

I've got a copy of Debian 3.0 and have managed to install it on a separate partition.

However, I hit a problem when the system starts.

After everything loads, I get a message saying "I cannot start the X Server..." and then I get asked if I want to use a utility to set up the video card/monitor. I'm using a GeForce2MX card with a ViewMaster CM555 monitor.

I've selected the Geforce option in the configuration utility however this doesn't make any difference.

I'm using XFree86 version (I think!)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
