HD Install booting w/ black screen :(
Hello everybody, i have been lurking the forums for a while now, and it looks like i need help finally
Just for the record, EVERYTHING is working fine and dandy...
Except, when i boot up my pc, and boot backtrack off my HD, i get absolutely NO type of video (screen is blank from the very start of the booting process)
The funny thing is, even without any video, when i can login like i would usually do ( user=root pass=toor) and when i type "startx" it starts KDE no problem, and everything works.
To sum it up, i want to know if any of you pro linux users can help me fix this problem.
Here is my xorg.conf, and my lilo.conf
(sry, i have to post the links like this since i cant post the full links)

Thank you for reading this far THX
Try using paste bin for large files and then link it. I'm sure that some people have well exceeded the download limit for a lot of free sites so they can not down load.
Don't know anything about your machine, but....
Have you tried something lower?
Maybe the framebuffer is to high for your vga?
Try 788 (800x600x64k) or even 785 (640x480x64k) if it's an old/small screen....
Failing that even "vga=normal" instead of using a framebuffer?
Just an idea...
