    dont see a GUI screen after redhat 9.0 installation


    i am new to redhat. i installed 9.0 on my computer, a HP laptop. after the installation i dont see a GUI screen, but only CLI instead, which also flickers and frequently shows a blue screen with "yes" and "no" buttons on it, before the CLI screen itself starts running normally.
    i tried figuring out the problem twice. i thought, it has to do something with my screen resolution and/or color depth, which for the second time, i corrected to 1024x768 and 24bit respectively, but the problem persists.
    everything else seems to be working fine, i mean at the CLI, all the commands and all. please help me out.

    Try typing
    Code:
    startx
    in the CLI to see if it goes to GUI
