Description of problem:
Installation or upgrade fails on Dell Optiplex 745 equipped with Intel
Corporation 82Q963/Q965 Integrated Graphics Controller
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Just try to install Fedora Core 9 or upgrade from FC8 to FC9 on a Dell Optiplex 745.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start the installation/upgrade procedure.
Running anaconda 184.108.40.206, the Fedora system installer - please wait...

you may safely reboot your system
Go to the following step :)
According to the traceback, it seems that anaconda was trying to probe my video
card but failed. Another element is the line about my Samsung harddrive. Don't
know who is the culprit.
