linux install problem

I have tried to install mandrake 9.1 on Sony Vaio PCG-GRT785B but it freezed when I boot with CD I cannot install in text mode too after choosing text or graphical interface it freeze

after that I installed redhat in text mode because its not possible to install with graphical interface then when I boot for first time I couldn't see anything I looked for driver and searched in forums but they all say recompile kernel or something like that I don't know how to recompile kernel

if anyone knows how to do it with mandrake or redhat

thanks for your help
