Fedora 12beta LXDE blank screen on startup Live CD

I have downloaded 2 versions of Fedora 12 beta i686 LXDE and i386.

The standard edition starts fine (Fedora 12beta i386).

The second, which I downloaded to get something faster, i686 LXDE
takes just as long to load, except the screen stays blank.

Because I am given no options when it boots, I don't know how to specify a different display type?

I have a pretty "normal" notebook, a Toshiba A100-VA7 Satellite,
core2duo, Centrino chipset. 2GB RAM, 160GB HDD, 1280x800 15.4" LCD.
It's really nothing exotic.

I don't know what kind of graphics card it has, only that it's 1280x800.
here is an excerpt from LSPCI:
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/PM/GMS, 943/940GML and 945GT Express Memory Controller Hub (rev 03)
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)
00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS/GME, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) High Definition Audio Controller (rev 02)
