Description of problem:
I am unable to install Fedora Core 1 in graphical mode, since this
problem happens after the monitor is probed (even with option 'linux
skipddc'). Option 'linux text' and 'linux headless' allows me to
install  without any problems, until I reboot. The monitor goes blank
and machine fails to respond. Using the 'linux headles' option, I've
been able to try and reconfig XFree86 without much luck.

I'm using a Athlon XP 3000+, 1GB Ram System with a ATI Radeon 9200.

I expect it to be a monitor prob since it is unsupported. I use a Tiny
17" CRT Monitor and after several tech support emails, I have yet to
receive a reply to help me out.

I did get a out of range message a couple of times displaying the
values. VSync: 30-70 & HSync: 50-160 .. I have tried to use these
settings, but still unable to find a solution.

Any help is much welcomed.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Everytime I boot up Fedora Core

Radeon 9200/9600/9800, and the Pro, SE, and XT variants of these
are now officially supported in Fedora Core 2 and later OS releases.

Once you've upgraded to Fedora Core 2 or later, this hardware should
be automatically detected and configured.  If you experience problems
with the "radeon" driver in Fedora Core 2, please file a bug report
in the X.Org bugtracker located at in
the "xorg" component.

Setting status to "CURRENTRELEASE"
