Your Red Hat 9 install should allow you to test your display settings. You will want to try different settings to find ones that work. I would start with 800*600 with 16 bit color depth.

I would recommend, installing Fedora Core 3 or 4 or 5 instead of Redhat Linux 9. Redhat Linux 9 might probably not have advanced drivers for the new computer that you have.

You can make one attempt to start the X-Window!

If you can see a console, type startx and let us know what error message (if any) is shown.

What dispaly driver to you have?
What do you have in /etc/X11/xorg.cong

If you have an Nvidia driver download and install the latest driver.

Lightbulb Have a solution

While installing in X mode it gives a chance to select your monitor
at that time tell it the horizontal and vertical sync rate of your
monitor which is written right there at the back of the monitor.

Hope it will help you.

It cannot be specifically told what's on CD 3.

But try a very minimal Personal Install (that would take a while - you will have to go through each Software and tick / untick the ones that you want/ don't want)

Make sure you tick the option for "Manual software selection" (or something resembling that)

That would help you avoid the requirement of CD 3 in the FC Install.

Well, I suppose, Fedora gives you an option to check whether the media that you are using (in your case a CD) to install it is perfectly ok. You should have done that..

Secondly, you may just try your luck by removing the CD from the drive and inserting the CD back again a few times...(at times this works..surprisingly)

What is the version of Fedora you are installing?

Maybe you should redownload the CD3 and try again. (Don't forget to check the SHA1 sum on the file)

Also, is your current CD too scratched?
Was it not burnt at a low speed like 8x ?
Disks burnt at higher speeds (32x-40x-52x) usually pose such problems.

The CD Checks on the Fedora Core CDs are often incorrect. (Incorrect as in sometimes they show the disk is faulty, even if the SHA1 sum for the disk is correct, even if there ain't no scratches on the disk..etc)
I don't know on what basis are the disks checked.
