I am having serious trouble with linux and I need big help.
I am trying to install redhat 9 linux on my computer. I inesert my cdrom and reboot my computer. Once i pass the welcome screen my monitor starts flashing. I've been all over the net trying to address this one and so far no luck. I've tried the following ideas unsuccessfully at the boot prompt.
linux bf24 video=vga16
linux idepci video=vga16
None of this made any difference. about 2 seconds after i hit the enter key the monitor starts flashing. The program seems like it would still run, but flashing linux isn't what i had in mind.
These are my system specs:
P4 2.8C (Asus p4c 800 deluxe motherboard)
1 gig ram
geforce fx5200 vid card (17" compaq v75 monitor)
2 hard drives (i was hoping to use linux exclusively on one)
Can somebody help me!?!?!?
