Hello to all
Here's a solution that i've found in another thread, to some of you with a starting black screen (it worked to me with a Mandrake 9.1, Athlon 1800, GeForce Ti 4200-64, and a Elite motherboard)
As simple as this:
If you start a new install, and the built drivers work, go to the KDE or Gnome Control center, and in the boot section-advanced disable noapic and and make acpi off too.
If you have allready an installed distri add those options to LILO or other
Hope that works!!
