Install in text mode. you should down load fedoara (still need text mode). The problem is you 5200 card. (and is that mother board a Nforce2 Board) if so red hat 9 probaly will not install. fedora is what some are calling red hat 10. you still need the Nvidia driver and then a little work.
after you install in textmode it may lock up after reboot when I't tries to start X. boot the install cd hit f5 and type linux rescue. mout your main partition. edit /etc/inittab to start in default init level 3.
_____________YOU MUST INSTALL DEVELOPMENT PACKAGES INCLUDING
KERNEL DEVELOPMENT _______________________
do a wget http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/1.0-5336/N...
after the driver downloads type the following
rpm -e --nodeps XFree86-Mesa-libGL && export CC=gcc32
now type ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run
after that is finnished you need to edit your XF86Config file . its localted in /etc/X11/XF86Config
you need to remove any refrence to dri
you need to change your card driver from nv or vesa to nvidia.
I know this is a hassal but it because nvidia put a faulty drive for the fx series cards into the X11 build.other releases like mandrake and SuSE do not have this problem as they relesed after the fix was posted. if you have problems email me and I'll send you my XF86Config file and a step by step install procedure.
# RgbPath is the location of the RGB database. Note, this is the name of the
# file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db"). There is normally
# no need to change the default.
# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
# the X server to render fonts.
# Specify which keyboard LEDs can be user-controlled (eg, with xset(1))
# Option "Xleds" "1 2 3"
# To disable the XKEYBOARD extension, uncomment XkbDisable.
# Option "XkbDisable"
# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the
# lines below (which are the defaults). For example, for a non-U.S.
# keyboard, you will probably want to use:
# Option "XkbModel" "pc102"
# If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
# Option "XkbModel" "microsoft"
# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:swapcaps"
# Or if you just want both to be control, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:nocaps"
Option "XkbRules" "xfree86"
Option "XkbModel" "microsoft"
Option "XkbLayout" "us"
# If the normal CorePointer mouse is not a USB mouse then
# this input device can be used in AlwaysCore mode to let you
# also use USB mice at the same time.
