No Screens Found, please help!!!!

Good Morning;

I recently downloaded the YDL iso file and burned it to a cd. After this I booted with the cd, and typed "install-gui" I choose the Install Everything option. This installed wonderfully. My computer was again restarted and this time it asked me to press "l" or "m" I choose "l" then once in that I wa prompted with the "login" I logged in successfully. Then I typed
"startx" After a few screens resizes and some text scrolling on the screen it said "No Screens found" I then set my settings to "video=atyfb" then "video=atyfb video=ofonly" This did nothing. It still said No screens found.

You probably need to run the XFree86 configuration utility and enter the correct specs for your video card and monitor. Since YD is a Redhat-based distro, the command is probably "Xconfigurator" (case-sensitive, no quotes). If not, try XF86Setup.
