This is a wrong place to ask. Description of debian-project mailing
debian-project: Discussions about non-technical issues in the project

Ask you question again in debian-user mailing list, then I can tell
you the following:

The GF9800 display card is newer than Debian 4.0, so that version can
not have drivers for that card and probably does not even recognize
it. Either use only VESA graphics or install the binary only driver
NVidia provides on its web page. Or install some older display card, I
have GF8600 which works just fine.
