Fedora 8 Live CD (KDE) i686: Monitor blank right after/during boot


Hi, I tried to run the Fedora 8 Live CD (KDE) i686 but it can't boot.

I can enter the boot manager, and edit the Kernel parameters, when I remove the 'quiet' option, I see the system booting to some point.

After that, my TFT-Display becomes blank, showing an OSD-Box with 'Not Optimum Mode; Recommended Mode: 1280x1024 60hz'

Any idea how I could pass an information to the Kernel so that I can see anything?

Changing to a text-console (Ctrl-Alt-F1 or Ctrl-F1) does not work.
System seems to ignore Keyboard input as well (Ctrl-Alt-Del does not work either)

please help

I got some progress:

I can boot into runlevel 3, and log in as root.

Yeah I was also able to reach to that stage. What do you do next?
