I've been trying to install Mandriva 2007 and the login screen
have been showing up blank.

The Mandrivausers folks have been asking what kind of video card I
have. I don't know the card offhand. Is there a way to get the info
from the computer. I know I can log in as root using the "failsafe"
mode, thus I can get a command line starting at /. From there, how
can I tell what video card I am using?

After giving the video card info, I was pointed to change inittab.
