Red Hat 7.3 Instalation freezes durin screen selection

X Customization - blank screen problem RedHat7.3 & XP
I have a problem with Linux installation. I installed on a new system which I just purchased - Compaq Presario 6016US, and ViewSonic VA520 Flat Panel Display.

-Processor Brand AMD Athlon™ XP 1800+
-Graphics Integrated nVidia GeForce2 graphics

The installation software selects my monitor during Custom X Configuration and the video card. I have a flat panel display ViewSonic VA520. The system defaults to:
- NVIDIA GeForce 2 MX (generic) video card
- DDC Probed Monitor and selects VSCba07 type of monitor.

This installation worked during my first attempt ( it was set to 1024x768 screen resolution)

However during consecutive and repeated attempts to install linux after I neede to re-install, during X Customization, after clicking on Test Settings button for Customize Graphics Configuration, the screen goes dark and stays blank FREEZES.

I don’t know what causes this problem and how to resolve it.
First installation – the GUI environment worked just fine.
The next installations, done the same way do not.

Thank you for help.

please do not double post, you already promised not to when you agreed on the rules. and if you are gonna double post, you should at least put it in a different forum... no point whatsoever from posting it just twice next to another.
