RedHat 9 Installation Problems... NVIDIA Drivers
I recently bought a Sony VAIO GRT170 notebook computer and I'm trying to install RedHat Linux 9 alongside Windows XP. I'm pretty sure the dual-booting works properly, since the GRUB bootloader comes up at startup like it's supposed to, but when I choose Linux, I get a blank screen (after all the intialization commands). From what I've read so far, I think this is because of the video card (NVIDIA GeForce4 FX Go 5600, 64MB); during installation, instead of leaving the generic VESA driver selected, stupid me went through the list and chose the one that most closely matched. My question is: how do I fix this without completely redoing the installation? I downloaded the updated Linux drivers from NVIDIA's website, but I don't know how to use them. Since I can't even really start Linux at all, I have no idea what to do. I'm a complete newbie, so step-by-steb help would be very much appreciated.
