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:

0000:00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corp. 440BX/ZX/DX - 82443BX/ZX/DX Host bridge (rev 03)
0000:00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corp. 440BX/ZX/DX - 82443BX/ZX/DX AGP bridge (rev 03)

0000:01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: IBM 256-bit Graphics Rasterizer [Fire GL1] (rev 01)

System Summary:

Thanks in advance!
