Angry FC4 Crashes with S3 Trio video card: KeyError: 'S3 Trio3D\nS3 Trio64 3D' possible BUG

I am trying to install Fedora Core 4 on my IBM Pentium II, 288MB RAM, with 2 hard drives, Primary hda1(master) Windows XP , Primary hdb1(slave). When I try install Fedora 4 on the second hard drive. I failed to do. How can I fix this?

It crashes on me and I keep getting this error:
  Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 827, in ?
    skipMouseProbe = skipmouseprobe)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/rhpl/", line 79, in probeHW
    videohw    = videocard.VideoCardInfo(skipDCCProbe=skipDCCProbe)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/rhpl/", line 512, in __in__
    if vc.getCardData().has_key("DRIVER"):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/rhpl/", line 175, in
    return Video_cardsDBLookup(self.cardData["NAME"])
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/rhpl/", line 34, in
    card = Video_cardslist[thecard]

I fixed this problem. Solution:
when installing enter the command:
 boot: linux text headless
Can anyone tell me what this command does (linux test headless)?
