Start your install as you usually would.
The Red Hat Enterprise Linux install boot prompt "boot:_" displays.

then ensure that you have the accelerated graphics driver installed.
Boot to the default kernel (SMP) and run
# glxinfo | grep "direct rendering"
If this returns "direct rendering: Yes", then you have the accelerated graphics

If it returns "direct rendering" No", then you will need to download and configure
the accelerated NVidia graphics driver.
