Hi, It was impossible to do so given that the machine had no means of 
communicating with the outside world short of typing it manually.  I have now
(by running disk one and selecting upgrade) managed to get the system useable 
and X will work but ONLY if you dont change any display settings - the minute 
you do this it runs a blank screen on startx and wont output any display apart 
from this at all(no matter how long you wait).  This is clearly a fault in the 
driver and the same issue was present in fedora 4(changing display settings to 
anything beyond 256 colours and 800x600 screen res caused the same behaviour) 
so it clearly hasnt been fixed.  i realise this has limited affect but I 
imagine that it wont just affect one user and potentially if the driver is 
flawed for this machine, it will be flawed for others too.

Fedora Core 6 is no longer supported, could you please reproduce this with the
updated version of the currently supported distribution (Fedora 7, 8, or
Rawhide)? If this issue turns out to still be reproducible, please let us know
in this bug report. If after a month's time we have not heard back from you, we
will have to close this bug as CANTFIX.

Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter.

reproducible, or has been fixed in one of the updates we have released for the
reporter's distribution.

Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade to the latest
update of their distribution, and if this issue turns out to still be
reproducible in the latest update, please reopen this bug with additional
