Hi Siva,

I have been battling with the same problem for a few weeks now. From 
everything I can find it appears that the graphics controller on these 
motherboards (mine has the C15G nVidia chipset and the controller is 
recognised as a GEForce 6100).

I followed Jim Perrin's instructions and downloaded and installed the 
nVidia driver from RPMForge and still have the same problem. My next 
step is to try to find a PCI or PCI express graphics card that is 
supported by Linux so that I can start using this server.

The subject of the thread in which my problems were discussed is: "nVdia 
C15G chipset and GeForce 6100 on board graphix controller"

Sorry that I cannot give you more positive feedback but hope that this 
helps in some way.
