    Install video driver when the monitor show sync out of limit

    Hi there .....

    This is the case :

    I have a pc with Red Hat 9 installed and when it starts, the monitor
    shows the normal begining : it show me the setting up of de services
    which are like :

    setting up one service .................................................. ............. [ ok ]

    but when this part ends , the monitor doesn't show the graphic interface (the monitor show me this message : "sync out of limit") so i suppose it is a driver problem

    what i need to know is how start linux like in a "safe mode" as in windows or something seemed, (and i am not comparing this two O.S)

    I have the drivers but i don't know how to install it..

    please help me, i really need it..

    thanks a lot .....

    Well, you might say there is a "safe mode", but it doesn't bring to a degraded graphical display, but it brings you to no graphical display at all, that is, a command line.

    To do that, when GRUB starts, press "e" on the menu item you wish to boot, select the "kernel" line, press "e" again, and add a space and a "3" (w/o quotes) to the end of the line, press enter, and then press "b" to boot. That will start the system in runlevel 3, in which no GUI gets started.
