The promised attachment is apparently missing...

Just to say I've seen this as well with the F10 beta. I think the original poster is referring to the initial welcome screen where you are asked to create a first user, set the date time, whether to send smolt profile etc... The problem is that the screen is incorrectly scaled so you cannot see the Forward and Back buttons.

I found that adding "nomodeset" to the kernel boot arguments caused the screen to be correctly scaled. I installed from the Live CD rather than the installation DVD.

Sorry, forgot to mention I'm using an ATI Mobility Radeon 9700. I guess that info is quite pertinent!

Johan, could you please provide us that promised attachment? If you won't reply in one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
