FC4 - Can't access any other terminals(tty)

Installed FC4 without a hitch on a Dell Dimension 3000. I've got the Gnome desktop up and when I try to access a tty via Ctrl+Alt+F2, I get a black screen. I press a key or two but I don't get a prompt.

Hardware Browser shows:

Intel 82865G Integrated Graphics Controller

Device Information
Manufactureer Unknown
Driver Card:Intel 865

Any ideas?

Nevermind...I found the answer. For those that are having the same problems, here's the solution.

Again, this is for the Dell Dimension 3000.

If you cannot access the virtual consoles w/ Ctrl+Alt+F2, you will need to edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf file to reflect

Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "vesa"

where Driver initially says "i810"

This allowed me to access all ttys.
