Description of problem:
Been having issues with installing Fedora since FC3 (see bug #122760 for history and machine specs - attachments)

When installing FC4t1 on my Dell Dimension 4500 S (no jokes please ;-), the installer hangs after testing AGPGART..."linux noprobe" and "linux skipddc" (and combined) have no effect.

The last line of output before it hangs is a report about finding some "stolen memory", presumably reserved by the onboard (but unused) AGP graphics chipset.

The saga continues ;-)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Power up with CD #1 in drive
2. At prompt, enter "linux resolution=1280x1024"
3. Elvis leaves with the fat lady

Actual Results:  Tears...questioning the fabric of reality and the injustice of it all...

Expected Results:  Happiness, enlightenment and unbounded joy
