blank screen on red hat 9 startup

I'v just installed linux red hat and the installtion went fine.
But, when RH boots up, after the boot process, I get a blank screen and can't do nothing.
During the installtion, my graphics card have been chosen by the installtion program, and seems to be correct.

My graphics card is Nvidia Gforce 256.

What can I do?

Thanks in advance!

Please take a look at this topic:

It is mentioned there that some files need to be downloaded.
If I download this files from Windows, then how do I go to their location from the command prompt in linux?
