    When I run to install in the Graphic Interface (the list of card driver)
    but there aren't any type of card driver suitable with my computer as
    : Intel (R) 82845G/GL/GE/PE/GV Graphic Controler
    (I see this name in the WinXP system), the true name is D845GVSR Card.

    + I try using a other card to install, I choose the graphic mode option in the installing but The graphic interface can't show when it start, it start in the Text mode option. I run a command is StartX but there is a message
    appear about Graphic Interface.
    + I install again and choose the Graphic Interface (default) mode option
    but it start in the Text mode option.
    + I also come to to download driver for video card (Linux
    when I run this file it gave a error message:
    [Aborting]: You don't appear to have dialog installed. This program requires it.

    steps to install.

    2. run as defaults
    3. The other Partition
    + Swap: 1024 MB (vi RAM 512)
    + ext2 : the remain of hardisk ( / )
    4. Select Server option
    5. Select Graphic interface mode option: Default
