Default Red Hat 9 + nVidia Geforce 2 MX

It's my first time I tried to install Linux and it all seemed well until the system tried to boot for the first time when it crashed,the screen turned off and then...nothing!It may be another problem but I think that it's the graphics card cause when I boot in text mode instead of graphical mode everything is ok.

It doesn't sound like it's crashing; most likely it's trying to start a video mode your monitor doesn't support.

When you start in text mode and then type "startx", does the same thing happen, or does X crash?

(If the same thing happens, you can probably get back to the command line by pressing CTRL+ALT+Backspace to kill X)

Unhappy

It seems like the problem is the resolution of the screen.It can't run at 1024x768.But I use this resolution when running Windows XP...Can I fix that?Maybe downloading new drivers?If I can't fix that can I set the resolution during the installation?And how do I boot into text mode?Thanx for the help!
