linux 9 mysterious problem
i am a new one in linux world. i installed linux 8 once and it worked fine. but now i am trying to install linux 9 and it detects all my hardware properly but just as it is about to start the graphical mode(after detecting all the hardwares) it says "Input not supported". i have had the same problem with fedora. i am giving my configuration below:
AMD athlon XP 1.8 GHz
40 GB HDD
512 MB RAM
monitor- LCD monitor model- AOC LM520/520A
graphic card- S3 Prosavage DDR (it is integrated with motherboard)
please someone help!!!!!
All i see is a blank monitor with "Input not supported" written in large letters.
i installed linux 8 afterward and it installed perfectly and i have checked the cd and they were burned properly (they passed the test)

I did a few google searches and came across this thread that mentions having to edit the default /etc/X11/XF86Config file:
Section "Device" Identifier "Videocard0" Driver "savage" VendorName "Videocard vendor" BoardName "S3 ProSavageDDR" Option "UseBIOS" "no" EndSection
