I did a test run - installing Fedora 10 Alpha on a new computer (to

Good and the beta is not far away..
BUT, I am guessing that the Open Source drivers are having problems
with that card - is that going to improve on the Alpha install?
You mean the beta right..
When I installed, it would not use the graphical installer - and
decided that the only way it would install would be in terminal mode.
You did finish install right and updated to latest rawhide?
Upon first reboot, the "cylon" screen came up (all blank
colour with a
bar going back and forth).... It just stopped there. I believe it
fell back to terminal mode again, but it was hidden behind this screen
so I could not see what I was entering (i.e. after I was hitting keys,
and enter many times - it did finish - but it was configured all wrong
since I really did not know what I was doing).
Try it with the kernel parameter nomodeset ....
