Description of problem:
while installing fedora in a compaq proliant 1600, when anaconda
reaches the instruccion:
Probing for monitor type: unknown monitor
the installer crash.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install fedora
Actual Results: The installer crash
Expected Results: succesful installation.
Does booting with 'linux skipddc' help?
run installing with option boot: linux skipddc
the installer crash, in same instruction
Try running the installer with a serial mouse attached instead of
PS/2. Fedora Core hard locks the machine on access to the PS/2 mouse
Redhat 8 and 9 has this same problem on Compaq 1850R's and DL380's.
You could get around it on RH8 and 9 by running the install as 'linux
nousb nodma'. However that doesn't seem to work with Fedora.
This should be better in newer Fedora releases.
