Unhappy Problems when booting linux


Can anyone help me?

I've just installed Red Hat Linux 9, and I haven't experienced problems during installation, but when i'm booting linux, my screen goes to nonactive mode...

I'm using a AG Neovo F-15 Flatscreen with a MSI NVidia GeForce FX5200 64mb graphics card.

Does anyone know a solution to my problem?

did you make it through the graphical config at the end of the redhat install, and did you get everything right?
