Red Hat 7.2.....

I just installed red hat 7.2 on my laptop. it's dual booted with xp and red hat. when i boot in to linux it boots up to the screen to ask me my name and pass....i put in root and my password. after this it goes to a blue screen and sits there. the after about 2 minutes it comes up with a fatal error (something about KDE) and then won't do anything. anyone know what this is? the only thing that i can think of is the fact that i have it set as dhcp and there is no NIC plugged in that is getting a signal right now. what does everyone think? thanx.

KDE is the Linux version of CDE, Common Desktop Environment.

Your box is trying to pull up the Xwindows, or GUI for your Linux. You may have a problem with your display resolution or your video card compatibility.

You will have to disable this to boot in command mode or possibly reload to reconfigure. OR even check out your display or video card compatibility.
