no graphics output on an s3?

Ok, so I tried to install fc3 on this laptop, and even before it goto the media test, the screen went all fuzzy. I then booted with linux nofb, and it worked, for the media test, but then after that nothing showed up on the screen. so, I had to do

$linux text nofb

And I was able to install it.

ON another note, I tried running auditor, and it worked only in safe mode. Where it booted into X. so, I am assuming it uses a generic Vesa driver? Dunno, but X worked fine then.

so, here is what I am thinking now... I can get fedora to boot up in run level 3. But I cant remember where the conf file was to change what driver it loads? Or , am I in the right direction? can anybody make any suggestions?

This laptop is a little on the older side and actually has a 1.2ghz via processor.

The file you need to edit is /etc/X11/xorg.conf .
