Description of problem:
This one has been around since FC6 at least and it presists in the FC7test4 DVD,
the anaconda screen is garbled beyond use unless I pass resolution=1680x1050,
after the install the setup is detected correctly.
using the r200 driver on a LG L204WT-BF monitor.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot FC7test4 DVD
2. notice garbled screen
correctly detected display

And let's try that again while I'm not being stupid, attached X.log file from a
system where I didn't pass that parameter in question.. doh.
Almost certainly a radeon bug.
This isn't a regression from FC6, and we have a workaround, so I'm moving this
off the blocker list. We may need a release note / CommonBugs entry about this
for F7, though.
Since this has persisted since FC6 I'm setting this to block F8
Would be good to get a test of this with f8t2 or so. There's a new radeon
driver that has a good chance of either making this work, or breaking it completely.
I tested with F8 test 2 and is anaconda no longer garbled, closing.
