XFree86 Problem

hi...i recently installed redhat 7.2 on a P1 167mhz 32mb of RAM machine and i have problems when i try to 'startx', I do not know what the graphics card is but it worked fine in Windows 98 2nd edition.

When the installler asked about the graphics card i chose 'Generic VGA Compatible' with 1MB of video ram. For the monitor i chose 'Generic Standard VGA, 640x480 @ 60Hz'...hoping for the best.

When i do startx, it does attempt to enter graphical mode, the screen just flickers for about 1-2 seconds and then i get dropped back to console.

I have included the full log below if it helps :)...any ideas on how to get this working

    hi
    try this
    first find out what is the graphics card your using ( i mean the vendor look for it in manual)

    if dont have the manual ... open the system look for the card
    you will find the deatails reagrding vender and
    it's vertical and horizontal sync rates...

    now start Xconfigurator .......a utility programme for
    setup x-windows ...

    start it as root

    if dont have this utility install it
    use rpm command

    then start Xconfigurator
    it ask for some input and asks for vedio card type here you have to select correct card and have to enetr sync details ......


    if dont find the driver for you r card then ask for it on the net .... some body must be having it ... just try it ?
