Unfortunately, what's burned on the installation CD is permanent, so if the
GUI installation fails, that is pretty much a permanent thing for the given
OS release.  ie: there's no way to fix the installer once the OS is released

Having said that, you've indicated that the problem occurs also after the
OS starts up after a successful install with a different video card.

Using the S3 card that you're having the problem with, please run:

"system-config-display --reconfig" manually, and then run "startx" from the
commandline to manually test X.  If the system locks up, please reboot back
into console mode (nongraphical).

After this, attach the uncompressed X server log and config file from your
installed system to the report as individual attachments using the link
below, and we'll try to diagnose from there.

Thanks in advance.
