Description Wade Minter 2000-12-20 15:31:50 EST
Upon starting the installer, I get an "Undefined video mode nubmber" error,
with instructions to press Enter to list modes or enter "scan" to scan.  I
pressed Enter and selected option 0, 80x24, and installation proceeded

It's trying VESA framebuffer, your video card (apparently) doesn't

We're working on disabling the error message so it automatically
falls back to test mode.

This is a kernel message, and a known issue.
