Fedora Core 3 and ATI Mobility Radeon 9700

I am trying to install fedora core 3 on my new laptop. Aopen 1557 with ati mobility radeon 9700.
I boot with CD1 and after "running /sbin/loader" it all goes black. Nothing happens after that point.
Any suggestions ?
Thanks in advance for any help!

I got myself around this problem by using my desktop screen during install.
When all was installed and ready to go I yanked it out, and this time it all went fine. It found my stuff and it all works. I think it's configured to be ati radeon 9600 instead of 9700 though, but at least I got it installed now!

To start the installation process, when you insert the first CD at the first prompt type "linux nofb" and hit "enter"

When you finish the installation process go to this web page ""

Sorry for my english.
