Blank Screen, and Dual Boot
 
First of all, I tried to install Red Hat 9 dual boot with Windows. I don't seem to be able to do this. Which do I install first and how do I go about doing it?

My next question is as to why, after the installation is done and the system is rebooted, the screen just goes blank and the moniter goes into power saving mode. I have a PIII 933, 384MB RAM, 40GB HDD, GeForce 2 MX. It recognizes the video card, and moniter when I go through the install and even does the install in graphical mode, but when the installation process is over and the system gets rebooted, the moniter just goes blank and I have no idea why. Perhaps I should choose a different card and moniter? I have no idea. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Phekno

After you repartition your HD install Windows first.... install Linux in the last partition, trust me, everything will be alot better that way...

You dont have to change your GeForce 2 MX, it is supported by Linux although you have to download Linux drivers if you want to use Open GL....

You can try to install Linux first in terminal mode(dos prompt)... then you can configure x after the installation to start your GUI...
