Description of problem:
i installed FC4 in text mode (linux text) on an sun fire v40z (4x AMD
opteron dual core, 16GB memory). Installation was ok.
But when i tried to configure the on board video card (Trident
Microsystems Blade 3D PCI/AGP) for X11 with system-config-display, the
system hanged up by a white screen.
After changing the driver to vesa in /etc/X11/xorg.conf, i could work in
gnome/kde, but this is very unreasonable/slow.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install FC4 on V40z by using the zext mode /linux text)
2.Start "system-config-display" after OS installation
Actual Results: System hangs - white screen
Expected Results: video card is configuerd correctly
