Question Display Problems in 10.0

Ok, heres my problem. In the post-install configuration of MDK 10.0 Community, I cannot get a display to work correctly. Th installer shows perfectly fine, but i cannot find any settings that will work when X runs. When it tries to run, no matter which settings i select, the screen shrinks to about half the height and scanlines run up it and across it, the image is ghosted about 10 times across the screen. Can any one tell me what is goin on?

It's installed on my old machine, RIVA 128, 300ram, PII, etc.

Maybe the original settings for the installer could work, does any one know them?

i think the Riva128 uses ATI Rage drivers. go back to the video configuration & try changing drivers. the safest is prolly the ATI (utah) driver, but there are others that may work. if the ATI drivers don't work for you, try some of the generic nvidia drivers.
