Description of problem:
I downloaded the Installdiscs for FC2 from the net. I checked the 
first disc with the md5 checksum. I put the installer-disc into the 
CD-ROM/DVD device. I boot from the installer-disc. The kernel 
messages run over the screen. Then I can choose with installer to 
choose (graphical or text mode). Neither graphical or text mode work 
because the next screen is always a blue screen. On the bottom of the 
screen I see the commands for choosing or switching the menues. 

I got this error on my Aspire1356 LMI with Atholon-M Processor.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Put the CD into the drive

Also happens with Sony Vaio PCVRX850 trying to install Core 3.

I was able to work around the problem by booting "linux -nofb" at the screen
where the install mode (text/graphics) is chosen.
