Unsupported Video card

I have a MSI GeForce FX5800 video card and am unable to install as my
monitor goes out of range.

If I install using the text installation , what Video driver should I choose
as MSI have no linux drivers.

RedHat 9

the reason there is none is because there is no such thing ...
you have to use the nvidia driver because that is the type of card it is ...
here is an explanation on using the default 'nv' driver
and here is an explanation on using the 'nvidia' drivers to achieve 3d acceleration
