clean install graphics help
I am trying to install RedHat 9 on my XP Pro workstation. I have installed RedHat using a different HD (using media trays) with only small issuses. I have never had a perfect install on Linux, mainly graphic drivers install. I am trying to install RedHat on XP Pro OS using Virtual PC 2004 . After the start up, all I get is a black screen with unreadable text. My question is, during the boot, I get the option to press "C" for command mode. Is this a true enough command mode to install a grapics driver? I have never used Linux and wanted to try and break away from the microsoft tit. I have the updated drivers in .RPM form from ATI website. How do I boot to a command mode, get to the point I can switch to a CD-Rom drive and install the .RPM? I know nothing of the Linux command line or the syntax envolved, so any replies should be in the form of a reply to a two year old. If you can give me any links to the basic command line syntax... that would be great also. Thanks.
