Angry Problem after installation


I installed redhat 7 on a machine which already has Windows 2000 Advanced Server on it. installation went on fine. after i restarted, i'm not getting the lilo boot menu. What do i do? If i boot from a linux boot disk, Kudzu, a hardware detection tool loads and tells me that my sound card got uninstalled and asked me if i wanted to configure it. i said yes and it got configured.

normal bootup continued and i got to the login prompt and i got this error msg:

According to /var/run/gdm.pid, gdm was already running (813), but seems to have been murdered mysteriously.

the monitor switches off and on after this.

the first time this happened, i reinstalled linux. but the problem still exists. what do i do? pls reply immediately.

Thanks.

Guru

i think it's a problem with the GUI. CUI mode's working fine.
