using an rca output for video

I am using a linux box specifically for media on my television. I have it hooked up through the rca output on my motherboard (It is an HP pavillion motherboard).
While installing mandrake I get the option of testing the graphical configuration, which I do. Everytime I test it, the screen just goes red, the test times out, and I get kicked back into the configuration. I think that it is sending the signal to the regular screen output rather than to the RCA. How can I fix this? I was using windows before, but it quit working so I figured I'd move -up- to linux.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It's asking you if you want to accept the settings, yes is on the left and no is on the right. I think yes is selected so you could try hitting enter to accept and see if it works. Or try using the left/right arrows then hitting enter.

The other option would be to install using a regular monitor if you have one handy.
