the same problem with it too.

Expected Results: Login prompt.
what video board are you attempting to use? What type of monitor are you
attempting to use?
The graphics card we're using is the 'well-known' Tseng Labs ET 6000.
The monitor is a 17" IBM C72, but there isn't an option for that in the
setup so I used the closest - IBM C70. I have also tried it with a 21" Dell
P991 monitor with the same results.
does it work properly if you do an Xconfigurator --preferxf3?
