LCD screen blinks


I'm using RH9.
When boot from Installation CD or boot disk, my LCD fades and blinks after sysinit, and returns normal after entered X window.
It seems that it needs some adjustments or drivers.

Any solution? Thanks.

Plus, after RH was installed, when I'm using shell or bash, there is no problem at all.

You need to give a lot more specific information than this for anyone to be able to help you.

I boot from the original Installation CD or boot disk, and enter rescue mode.
Just after sysinit process was completed, system will run installation or /sbin/loader(eg. a menu for choosing language will come up);my LCD begins to blink after ran these kinds of program. But, after this kind-of-choosing-thing, system will enter the RH setup GUI. Blinking stops and everything goes find.

I wonder whether there is something wrong with my screen configuration, especiallly refresh rate.

To give you a general idea of the type of information normally required, you might want to have a look here.
