Hello, Im a big noob in the linux world. Im currently running windows but i get sick of this OS . I found mandriva, i downloaded it mainly because of the gui. When i booted from the CD, i first get a nice orange boot screen with a progress bar, and then the usual command lines. When booting seems completed, my computer screen says "no signal input", i should see something?!? Are there any drivers missing? could it be my hardware? or am i doing something wrong myself?

Sys Spex:
CPU: Intel Pentium 4 2.55 GHZ
RAM: 2048 MB Ram
GPU: Ati Radeon 9550 196 MB
Motherboard: GA-8SIML
HDD: 60 Gb
... and two cd drives.

Let me know and save me from windows AARGH :P
