Description of Problem:
I am a Student from Sri Lanka. My VGA Card is a Creative 3D Blaster 
Banshee and under Linux it Uses the Banshee Generic Driver and My Monitor 
is LG 1468 Model i have 256 MB of Ram and 512 Swap Space Alocated. Linux 
7.1 Seawolf Release Installs Fine But when you go to Boot it the Graphical 
Login Dose not appeare and the monitor blinks on and of. the resolotion i 
have used is 1024 x 768 at 16bit Colours. but when i boot with and linux 
boot disk created with Redhat Linux Version 7.0(Disk Created During 
Upgrading from 6.2)the Graphical login appears and every thing is fine 
exept for a few hardware ditections( I do not mind that). So is this Some 
thing to Do with My Monitor or is it vith the Lilo vertion ? ( I upgrated 
from 6.2 without a clean install because if you put it direct I encounter 
the same problem. but when i upgrade from 6.2 to 7.1 it dose not resolve 
it self like in vertion 7.0)
