Unhappy installing mdk 7.2 HELP!

ok here it goes..i have a p133 48 MB RAM 1.5 GB hd 32MB NVIDIA graphics card and an amdek monitor.

i used to have have mandrake 7.2 running on it before but with a CTX monitor. so now i have this older monitor and i was trying to install mandrake from dos but it keeps trying to install using a GUI and i was wondering if you could force the install to be text only so that i could at least use the console.

Yes you can install in text mode. This is why it specifically says so in one of the very first screens.
