Monitor distortion during installation
Greetings from yet another newcomer....
I'm having a similar problem (I think). I'm working on a IBM Intellistation my university sold off without an operating system. When attempting to install FC3, WB3, Mandrake 10.1 or start Knoppix 3.7 in graphics mode, I get either weird flashing lights or distorted text, depending on the installation mode I choose. Installation target is FC3.
I've seen the suggested patch for this problem on an already-installed system already mentioned. How do I get this puppy working when all I've got to install from just now is the .iso discs?
I've currently got the box running Knoppix 3.7 at runlevel 2. Output of /sbin/lspci is:
