FC11 won't install on Dell Studio Hybird

Trying to install FC11 on a Dell Studio Hybird.

Before I put any OS on this box I could boot off a FC11 CD and run a Live Linux DVD on it.

Then I installed Vista on this box, it was gone when I got it, I had to put Vista back on.

But hitting F12 and selecting Boot off a DVD , the Linux starts to run and gets to boot splash screen and then screen goes black, I then get a small window moving across screen that says "Input not Supported" Is Vista somehow blocking FC11 Linux from running a "LIve Dvd"

I know this is an obvious question, but can you still boot off the Live CD? If so, have you tried installing that way?

Usually the "Input not Supported" message is because the software is trying to set a screen resolution or refresh rate that isn't supported by the monitor. I'm running F10 and either Vista Business or Win 7 RC on 3 different machines and have had no trouble, so I don't think Vista did anything.

It was a FC11-Live Cd that I was using.
I stumbled across a kernel command I have never seen before that fixed the problem,
