Default Re: Install issues -- Fedora Core 1 (Yarrow)

Try enabling the vesafb framebuffer for the text mode install. You can do this by using the command: linux text vga=789
This will put the card into a 'graphics' text mode that may be more stable during the install for a 5200. It will be in 800x600 resolution, you can use vga=786 for 640x480 if necessary.
