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.
