video went kablooey(tech term)

installing R.H. 7.1 on my IBM with s3 trio onboard video and an old EGA monitor. after the "Welcome" screen the display scrambled. i've looked at the manufacturers site and several linux and general driver sites and can't find the driver to make this work. do i have to write my own? or is there a more comprehensive driver source that i haven't found yet?

Have you tried to do the textbased install? When things work out fine, you can run the textbase XF86config to make X work.
