6.1 RedHat from CD-ROM

I couldn't have stumbled any sooner than this. I'm attempting to install RedHat 6.1 (2.2.12) from a bootable CD-ROM and am getting a 'no screens found' error and the bootup quits. I can only imagine that this is a hardware problem. The real difficulty is that there is only a flash of what the boot is doing on the screen and then gone, so the only information I can get from it is the following:

(--) Mach64: PCI:unknown ATI (0x5245) rev 0.
The directory "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/type1 does not exist"

and the big one:
"None of the configured devices were detected".
I've searched the internet and there is next to nothing on this particular message. In need of help. Thanks.

video card

exactly what video card and motherboard chipset is in that machine? it's kinda hard to imaging an ATI card not detecting in rh linux... but i guess it could happen. try swaping video cards or try manually configuring it.

also, check the hardware howto for more info:
