Funky ASCII chars in anaconda

Description of problem:
When using the text install as described on https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA/Test_Days/2009-01-29 from a Fedora 10 x86_64 DVD, I get funky ASCII characters in anaconda, see the attached picture.

How reproducible:
Every time when the installer is started from a Fedora 10 x86_64 DVD.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start the installer with the "updates=http://clumens.fedorapeople.org/notext.img text" arguments.
2. See the funky characters at the "Welcome to Fedora" screen.

Additional info:
This bug appears on my laptop and also in a VirtualBox VM. When starting the installer with normal settings, only "text" for example, this problem doesn't occur. It really seems to be triggered by the "updates=http://clumens.fedorapeople.org/notext.img" argument.

The new text mode has been implemented, and I'm not seeing these problems anymore. If you see strange characters in the latest rawhide, please reopen this bug.
