Hi everyone,

I am trying to install Fedora Core 5 on the following system:

I went through the first part of the install and I actually believe that the install identified my video card and monitor correctly, but when I tried to launch anaconda, my screen went blank and would not restart.

I rebooted many times and it stayed blank until I did something which I know I should not have done - I unplugged the system and let it sit for a minute. I pulled out the install DVD and (sigh) returned to Windows XP...

Any advice regarding how to get past this point would be greatly appreciated -- I have friends and coworkers who LOVE Linux. I installed RH9 on an old system many moons ago and it was great - but I want to put it on this system if possible...

Thanks in advance!

First thing would be to use textmode install and then cycle tty's during the install and see if there's any useful messages. Lookingat the components it appears the Radeon Xpress 200 driver may be flakey. If that's the case stick with the VESA driver or downgrade Xorg's Radeon Xpress 200 driver. If you by any chance have a FC4 DVD then give that a shot as well.
