I tried the text mode install on an Intel 810 machine. I selected
workstation and used the second IDE HD. The first IDE HD has RedHat
7.0. After everything was installed, I selected 1400x1050 for X.
Then I pressed "No" to boot in the graphics mode. After that, the
installer screen went blank and never came back.
Assigned to a developer.
Some video cards, notably the i810 and some Voodoo 3's will behave strangely if
we test the X configuration on them in the installer. In the past, the
installer does not create the button if the card is one of these. I took it out
for beta 1, hoping that some of the problems in XFree4 have gone away, but
apparently they have not. I've re-enabled the code that checks for these cards,
so this should not happen in the future. Fixed in cvs. Brock, please verify.

verified fix in qa0110.0 test tree ... option to "test" x configuration is now
not present for i810 machines ...
