Description of problem:
I am attempting to install RH 7.2 on a Gateway 450.  RH 7.1 worked, but 
during install for 7.2 when I select the Nvidia TnT video card, there is 
no response to the test setting mode other than a blank screen.  I 
contacted Red Hat and we worked with the file XFree86-SVGA, and the 
problem still did not correct.  I am relatively new to Linux, and will be 
happy to provide more support to alleviate this problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install RH 7.2
2.Graphics Test Mode

Actual Results:  Instead of seeing the test pattern, there is only a blank 
screen for several seconds before returning to the previous Graphics Mode 

Expected Results:  I should be seeing the selected example such as 8 bit 
256 color sample when I press the Test Settings Button.

DOes it work if you do not use the test screen at all?
ie: Just select it, and dont' test, when configuration is complete
try running XFree86 and see if it works.  Does it work?
