Talking Monitor Probs !!


Posted this in the Graphics card Forum and had no response, thought i'd try here.

I'm a total Linux novice (Lindiot ?) and need some help.

I've just downloaded RH9 iso's and installed them. Pretty much using the default values and selecting GRUB as my boot manager. I have two problems.

1. I already have Win XP installed and want to have the choice of booting to Linux or XP on startup. Having selected GRUB I was hoping this would be the answer, but when I boot I go straight into XP.

Is there a way I can have an OS choice ?

2. I can get my RH9 to start by using my Boot floppy, but I end up with my monitor out of H & V sync and have no screen display.

How can I alter the sync so that I can see something ?

Linux (Ubuntu - Intrepid Ibis)/Win XP Pro
Gigabyte GA7N400 Pro
AMD XP3000+
Inno3D 6600GT 128mb
3x 512mb DDR400 PC3200 RAM
80gb Barracuda (SATA 0)
160b Maxtor (SATA 1)
60gb WD600AB(IDE 3)
Sony CRX230ED(IDE 1)
