Angry why i am not getting gui?

hello friends ,
i tried to install Redhat enterprise linux5 on my laptop which has 'ati radeon mobility' graphics card of 512 mb dedicated memory .but while installing i am not getting the graphical prompt of anaconda installer at all. It is showing me Xserver failed like errors and while the installation the red hat probes and finds my graphics hardware properly but after that it tries to initialize the xserver but it fails and then starts installation with the command line.

Then i did a installation on my laptop through the text based setup and downloaded the ati graphics driver of my graphics card but still when i tries to install it again it shows me the Xserver errors.

I am newbie at linux and i am not at all getting why this is happening to me. I tried fedora 9,10,11 on my laptops there it's working fine but i need redhat enterprize5 cause i appered for Red hat certification. so plz help me. i need it very much.

Yogesh Babar.

Can you post some of these X server errors that you're getting? You might need to edit your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.
