Redhat 9.0 + blinking monitor during install
 
When I boot the PC with Redhat 9.0 Install CD 1 in the CD drive (for first time installation) I get the very first screen, and press enter. After that the monitor displays thin horizontal lines that blink rapidly making the monitor unreadable and I can't continue with the installation.

Any suggestions?

I am dual booting between Windows 98 and Linux Redhat. The PC is an old Gateway Pentium II with Gateway monitor.

hmm... try to install in text mode first... then configure X windows later and download drivers for Linux for your video card

I got the same problem too.
I tried using the text installatio mode but it doesn't work. My screen start blinking as soon as i press enter ( after typing "linux text")
