XF86Config on Dell Inspiron 2650

I've installed RedHat 7.2 on my laptop, but X-Windows configuration doesn't
seem to be working.  It's unable to probe the monitor and I can't find specs
for horizontal sync anywhere.  A search of the net yielded nothing.

Has anyone got this working on this machine?

1. Problem with GUI for Inspiron 2650 running Redhat Linux 8.0

Hardware:  Dell Inspiron 2650 15" XGA Laptop Monitor,  
           32MB DDR 4X AGP nVidia GEFORCE2 GO

Software: Redhat Linux 8.0 boxed set of installation CDs

Problem:  Can get nothing but garbage displayed in GUI mode.
          I have tried many combinations of
             graphics cards, monitors, resolutions from the many choices on
              the Linux installation menus.  

Question:  Does anyone know which choices do work, if any?
           Are there know problems with the 8.0 released drivers?
           Where can I get correct drivers?

Any help appreciated!
