I have a Sapphire(Ati) X800 video card and I can't get Red Hat 9 to work
with it. I get a message that X Server cannot start, or something like that.
What can I do to fix this? I'm a relative newbie to Linux.

A few weeks ago I upgraded my video card to a Creative Labs Blaster
Riva TNT (I think that's what it is called). I have a dual boot system
and haven't started linux since that time. Today when I tried to boot
into Linux (RH 6.0 with KDE 1.1) I never got to the graphical login
screen. The system continually flashed some errors over and over and
over... about X failing to start. I realized that I should have
changed my runlevel before trading in my video card, but i forgot.
So how can I force Linux to start in text mode so that I can
reconfigure X? I can boot from my RH CD-ROM, but I'm not sure how to
mount the partition that contains my /etc folder. Please help!!!
