RH8 may not have the drivers

But when you installed RH, were you able to install in gui mode or in text mode only.

If you can only install in text mode, then RH8 does not have the drivers for it.

But still install X-windows. the when you are in text mode, install the driver package from nvidia

Then when you reboot, you *should* be able to boot into rc5. As long as kudzu is running, it should probe and find the new hardware and load the driver for it.

While installing RH9 just now, at the X config area where you specify your video card.

nVidias GEforce 2 Go card is listed.

I'm not sure if the card is listed in RH8, but if you reinstall RH8 look on that screen for your card.
