installing MDK 9.2 problems with display settings


I managed to get MDK 9.2 to startup, it took me to the command line. I realised I had not setup my display/video properly after reading around here. So I reinstalled, but when I got to the display section of the install nothing I tried would test okay, it kept saying an error had occured please change a parameter.

I have a Saphire Radeon 9600 pro card running on a LG Flatron L1710B flatscreen monitor. Its running through the DVI input output cable.

Is the flat screen a problem? Its not listed under vendors so I selected flat screen 1280 x 1024, but this did not help. I see there are three options for the graphics card - radeon, radeon (fbdev) and radeon (fglx). It defaults to the last one. Do I need external drivers?

I can get hold of a normal analogue cable between the graphics card and screen if thats the problem?

any helps will be appreciated.

Same problem. I cant boot into a GUI like KDE or GNOME, because the setup didnt recognise my graphics card

Help much appreciated
