No Sync signal during boot on RH 9.0!!!


I just installed Linux Red Hat 9.0, and I am having trouble booting. First all the devices get loaded on the DOS-looking screen, then the screen goes black and the monitor reports that there is no Sync Signal. I am running an Asus V9520 TD with a GeForce FX 5200 chipset. I have the grub boot loader (if that makes any difference?......) and as Asus A7N8X Deluxe Mobo. I am COMPLETELY new to Linux, I've never even seen what the linux desktop looks like, so please no technical terms with the software (I do know quite a bit about hardware though, so you can spare me the xtra details on that.)

When you ran the install - did you take the option to set up your video settings?
