Question system text console blank after install (not X)

I have an issue where I recently installed a machine with RH72. The installation goes smoothly all the way to completion (even X test). Once the system completes, it reboots. It begins with the nVidia MX-200 32MB video card display, then to the BIOS check, lastly to the RH grub img selection. Then thats all...blank screen. After a bit it will launch the X login, but I cannot see anything prior (i.e. daemons, etc.)

System Info:
ASUS P4B Motherboard
nVidia GeForce2 MX-200
80GB Disk
DVD Drive

one note: I couldn't find my monitor from the list and am thinking that this my be the problem. Has anyone see this problem before?
