Description of problem:
I just grabbed the DVD .iso for FC5 test 2,  during the install it probes for the hardware and detects that my laptop is headless.  The laptop is a dell mx140, this basically uses the intel i810 video driver and a generic LCD monitor driver.  I struggled through the text based setup, as the ncurses interface is not clean looking because of the lack of video detection.  then after getting it installed and rebooting, i also don't have X.

I'm not sure if this is specifically anaconda, or an xorg error.  if i copy the devices section from the xorg.conf from the ubuntu install i had before, it still errors out for me. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot install DVD
2.watch it not detect the i810 card or generic LCD monitor
3.curse at the computer

Actual Results:  doesn't detect video card or monitor

Expected Results:  should have detected generic LCD screen and a i810 xorg driver compatible video card

Additional info:

this also happened with FC4, i just got the laptop and hadn't tested it until now.  basically i will wait for test 3 before trying again.

i810 stuff should be fixed post test2.  Unfortunately, most LCDs aren't
detectable with the LRMI probing that we do (which is the only generic way to
probe monitors)
