I'm trying to install Redhat Linux 7.1 which comes with the 'Mastering Linux 7.1' book I just purchased. The installation goes well but it seems that I did something wrong 'coz I 've been experiencing some unwanted results after installing it. Some of these problems are listed below:
1. The screen continously flickers even before loging on as a user. It displays this message:
INIT: Id "x" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes
2. When starting X Windows (using 'startx' command), several pageful of messages appear and one line says, 'No screen found' or something like that.
3. Originally, I have two partitions on my hard drive. Drive D: is where I installed Windows XP and on C: is Redhat. After installing Redhat, instead of having an OS selection screen where I can choose from Windows XP and Redhat, I got an OS selection scrren of redhat where the only selections are Linux or DOS. How can I make Windows XP appear so I can still use it while learning Linux.
I hope I stated everything clearly. I really need to get this running so I can work at home when not in the office. Can anyboby help a Linux newbie make his transistion less traumatic?
