RH 9.0 install/boot issue....

I just installed RH 9.0 onto a new computer, and after the installation finishes (successfully), it goes to boot up for the first time, and it flashes the login prompt a couple times on the screen, then I get this strange aqua colored box that looks like it *should* have some error or other text in it, but all it has is a "Yes" and "No at the bottom of it.....I've tried both options, and after either one, it quickly flashes another aqua colored box that says somethig about video BIOS. I've installed RH plenty of times, but have never un across this, and have no idea if it has to do with th installation or the BIOS, or...?????? Any thoughts? By the way, I did completely re-install twice to make sure it wasn't just a fluke. Thanks.

I think I know what happens, it happened me too
I think you misconfigured your video card, install RH 9 again and when it asks for it, select 'default' or leave it as it is. That worked for me.

Yup, that was it...I either had my resolution too high or colors too much....So let me ask this: There's GOT to be away to reconfigure those settings without reinstalling the entire OS, right? How can you do that? I remember either deleting, renaming, or doing SOMETHING with a file, I believe it was /etc/X11/Xconfig....
