Ahh never mind. re-installed (clean install) server and selected custom, at the very end, got to where I could insert my monitor and video card settings. I went with minimum values (black and white monitor, 256K VRAM, 31.5Hz Vres 60 HZ Horiz, unprobed monitor, trio 3D video card, tested, worked fine.. All fixed..smile.gif

Hope this might help somebody in the future (at least those doing a server install)

using winXP can you browse through your hard drive (all partitions) making sure you select the option to show all files, including hidden files? Perhaps you can access the .passwd file and insert a new password, otherwise I imagine you need at least the root password (login: root, password: *****) from there you can access the "users" and change their passwords, then you can log on to your GUI interfaces using one of the users files (login: user_id password: *****) and run linux stuff from there...

without a root password, the only option I know of is to re-install linux workstation on that partition (DONT do a Server install if you want to keep WinXP- Server installations erase the entire hard drive, you would lose your windows O.S.)

maybe someone knows a way to hack the root login and make a new password if you can access the hard drive via windows.. I, for one, don't..

I'm a relative Newbie, and just built my little system to create a testbed server for my web development projects, so I have never done a partition and install thing on the same drive as a windows system.

HTH.

is there any way to change monitor settings in a distro of RedHat Linux 8.0 (actually Pink Tie Linux, but identical to R.H.)

I got it installed just fine, and can easily use the text installation, but I seem to have an issue with my monitor settings, THe terminal window shows up fine graphically, but the GUI stuff (xfree86, Gnome, KDE) will not work when I try to run it.. I seem to have an issue with Horiz. hold and Vert. hold on the monitor, I have the specifications to make these changes to the monitor settings in the installation, my trouble is when I run installation I dont get any place where I can input this data. The monitor is an off-brand VGA monitor, and is not listed in the drivers, and I can use the command line interface stuff, but I can't seem to find where to go to make the changes to monitor settings. I would like to get the GUI working, even though I am practicing working without a mouse (point and click, my butt! I like command line stuff, but cant seem to make use of the graphical interfaces when I need them, due to monitor issue)

Can anyone tell me how to access the config file for this issue and where to make the needed changes? Ive seen a couple similar problems posted here, but none of them seem to be what I am looking for.

Thanks much!

Bri!
