I have an ATI All-in-wonder 128 video card and a ps790 monitor. When installing 6.1 the prgram give me an error saying that the installation has failed because it could not open the display... Please get back to me on this on how I can fix it... my email is email@example.com

I am having a similar problem and have been told to type "text" at the boot option prompt. This uses a textual based install that is not reliant on your graphics card type. X windows can then be configured later. I do not know if this will help, but it is what I am about to try!!

Xconfigurator has been improved for the latest installer (available in beta) but there will always be cards for which we do not have driver support yet, and those cards will requite that users run the installer in text mode.
