Hey... I have the same Mobo... here is what you do

1) There is a great instruction set for this mobo and redhat 7.3 success story , by RTZ , search for "nforce redhat success"

for this Mobo you need 3 files...
1) nvidia nforce driver (install this first)
2) Glx file
3) nvidia kernel
download NVchooser to see what files you need

basically you will need to do this...

install redhat as per usual, 'cept do not select ANY video options... IIRC there is a choice to not configure Xwindows... THEN
restart and boot your linux install when you see the Lilo (GRUb wont work) hit ctrl-x and type "linux 3"

you will then boot and get a command line... install the nforce driver first, then restart (linux 3 again)... then install nvidia glx and nv kernel... then restart and configure XF86 file...

then restart and it *should* work...

NOw I know this sounds like alot of pain... BUT I did it and it is easy... if you have a zip drive it ames it easy b/c you can put all the files on one disk... or burn a cd, that is easy too...

MAKE SURE YOU CHECK OUT THE INSTRUCTIONS BY RTZ... makes it really easy.... come back if you need help...

IO have RH 7.3 running on my system right now, same MoBo so it will work... just read the RTZ forum...
