Oracle Enterprise Linux 5.3 installation issue


I am trying to install Orale Enterprise linux server 5.3 (64bit) on HP Pro 3330 MT (desktop) machine but installer failed to retrieve display card information while probing it and couldn't able to give display. I have tried on two separate machines having same specs (HP Pro 3330 MT) but it fails. However I am successful in installing it using Tex based installation mode. This means that generic drive for doesn't work on this system. Furthermore same version of Linux having 32 bit architecture has no problem in installation. Therefore please help me to find display drivers for linux so that I can compile on this machine.

I have tried kernel boot option "nomodeset" but no luck.

Any help would greatly be appreciated

is there a "must use" need for installing a version that is 7 minor versions out of date
5.10 is the current in the OLD 5 series with 6.5 the current

5.3 came out in 2009 and will NOT have built in support for hardware that is newer than 2009

so for hardware that is not 5 years old ( one full computer generation ) it might not install ,because there might not be support for hardware that came out AFTER 5.3 was released .

so if you MUST use 5.3
install it on hardware from 2009
