From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

Description of problem:
The installation cannot start in graphic mode though the chipset SIS 
651 is correctly detected. Installing in text mode works but, have to 
boot system in rescue mode and set the xf86config file driver to vesa 
to enable booting or else the display get distorted when rhgb starts. 
SIS driver doesn't work at all even when I set the the monitor to 
flat panel edit the config file and set the refresh rate to 60 Hz

Sounds to me like a driver problem.  Changing component to xorg-x11.
