Description of problem:
FC3T2 tried to install on a PC with 

� 	Intel� 865GV chipset
� 	Intel� ICH5 chipset

Video:  Integrated in 865GV NB.

The install process drops into text mode.
THe graphical install process is possible not detecting the video chips?

I also tried this for a machine with
Intel 815 shipset.

THe boot display says:

loaded e100 from /modules/moduels.cgs
modules Card 815 not found

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Insert FC3T2 boot disk
2. install drops in text mode

Actual Results:  drops into text mode

Expected Results:  Should be in graphical install mode

This works fine on my i865 box (it's my primary test box :).  Does X
work post-install?  Can you switch to tty2 when X startup fails and
grab /tmp/X.log and /tmp/ramfs/X.log?

after fiddling with the bios (actually turning on SATA even though
nothing was connected on this computer) only PATA disk - it now 
boots up correctly on the 865 machine.

Perhaps there is something else on the 815 machine - it was just old 
and setting there so I thought I would try it....

So this does work now on the 865 machine.
