NEW Graphics Card...Questions

Ok, i just bought and installed a Asylum 5200 256Mb PCI.
When im in the Graphical INterface (X) Configuration on the instilation. I go onto nvidia and choose the G*force FX cause it says that on the box...but when i choose the how much mega bytes it has it only goes to 128mb. Can i just use that and will i still get great performance.

Also can i choose to use my old intergrated intel graphics chip when reinstalling RedHAT 9 that came on my motherboard through my New Grafics card. Cause my moniter is pluged into it.

But my real problem is that i cant boot to linux on my secound hdd ever since i installed the graphics card. Can a new card cause Linux not to boot. I'm thinking and told that maybe it's my old floppy disk i have been using for a while and formated quite a few times. Could it be

I believe and i'm not positive but if the options are only to 128, that is it, but the overall performance should be really good.

You can try, but if you are doing a fresh install why not configure it for the new chip

And for question #3, booting shouldn't have anything to do with the graphics card, but a while back i was trying to install a distro and the graphics card in this old machine did give me probs and not let me install, but with a new card it shouldn't be the card keeping u from booting. I'm sure there will be some more responses to this post.

Sorry i couldn't help more
