Question Problem of dispaly with geforce fx 5200 and red hat 9.0


I installed Linux red hat 9.0, but after the rebooting, it's written all the stuff .... [ok], end at the end of this, when linux, I think, is going to pass in graphical mode, THE SCREEN TURN OFF !!! So I reinstalled it with VGA driver, after with the (generic) nvidia GeForce FX 5200 and it doesn't work, always the same problem.

So I downloaeded the last driver for the FX 5200 and I put them in a partitioned hard drive in vfat, but, as I can't run linux in graphical mode, I have to boot with the cd installation and to type : linux rescue, but then I don't know how to access to this harddrive, so someone could help me, please,(I have to put this file in the /root )

thank you,

Nicolas Julémont

You need to know what partition that vfat one is... ie - /dev/hda6 or whatever...

Type 'mount' to see if it's listed already. I don't know if Redhat sets up a vfat partition in your fstab or not. If you don't see it under 'mount' then you have to mount it. ie -

mkdir /mnt/vfat
mount /dev/hda6 /mnt/vfat
sh /mnt/vfat/

Or whatever the file name is. I think thats the latest one. Or if you want to keep it in your home directory:

cp /mnt/vfat/ ~/

I don't use Redhat so I'm not sure how to get a list of all your partitions. I always use 'cfdisk' but I don't think Redhat uses that... Good luck tho.
