Red Hat Linux 7.2 installation problem due to motherboard incompatibilty

My PC has Asus motherborad(Asus CUSI FX).It has an 128MB RAM. I installed Red Hat Linux 7.2 but the GUI was not installed properly.That is everytime I boot, it goes to the command mode and I could n't enter into the GUI mode(I am totally new to Linux ,I am not sure what you call it) My vendor told me that the problem was because Asus motherboard doesn't have an inbuilt Video RAM.

Later I heard from someone that I can solve the probem if install driver for my motherboard that works for the Linux OS. I am searching for such a driver but couldn,t yet find one.I request you to inform me if you could inform me if the driver software is
available anywhere for download or tell me about any suitable alternate solution.

1. check /etc/sysconfig/hwconf to check what VGA card and monitor have been detected
2. check /var/log/XFree.n.log
3. check /var/log/dmesg OR dmesg|less

run redhat-config-xfree86
