I just upgraded my video card to an MSI GeForce FX5200 AGP 8X and my Red Hat v9 will no longer boot. It appears that this card should be supported in VGA mode but my monitor looses contact. I cannot reinstall Linux either.

Any help would be great...

I would try to boot into character based mode and setup X over again.

To boot into Character based mode in RH9, you need run level 3.

This link tells you how to boot to a differnet runlevel at boottime:

Once at the character based login, login as root and edit the file:

/etc/X11/XF86Config (or XF86Config-4) and change the Driver line of your video card to:

Driver "nv"

And then reboot....
