Description of problem:

I have a Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo D 8830 (PIV 2.6G, 256MB ram, ATI Radeon Mobility 9000 64MB, no floppy disk) and when I try to install RH9, after boot prompt (I've tried several modes, like text, noprobe, ...) it starts with some probings for hard disk and others and then the screen goes blank. The cd is read once and afterwards nothing happens. I have to reboot.

I've also tried to install RH7.3 and it crashes in package instalation in anaconda's intf.run at line 633 (last debug message is at isys.py line 171 (umount) with the message "Device or resource busy".

I was able to install RH7.2 without X configuration and upgrade to RH7.3 but still working on setting X.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Does booting with 'linux nofb' help?
