I have the Albatron 5200 and had the same problem.
You have to select to install Redhat 9 in TEXT mode ( I know, it can be a real P.I.T.A. for a newbie )
When the whole installation in text mode is over ( even if you selected the NVidia Fx adapter ) you'll have to restart the computer ( still in text mode of course ) and as root edit, with the vi editor ,the /etc/XF86Config file . If my memory is correct you have to replace:
Device "vesa"
with Device "nv"
After rebooting you'll be in graphic mode.
I hope this helps
