Description of problem:
As my brand new ATI graphics card is not yet supported by XFree, I just 
wanted to skip the X config during installation, but even if I click the 
checkbox to skip X config anaconda pops up a little window telling me I 
have to select a graphics card or to click the checkbox to skip X Config?!

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install ROSWELL Beta 2 with an unsupported graphics card
2. Try to skip X config

Just an additional note:
The PCI id of my ATI Card is 1002:5446. But I don't know the exact name of this 

Comment 2 Joe Ceklosky 2001-08-23 16:08:57 UTC
To get around this for now, just select ANY card and then check the skip
X configuration checkbox, then hit next, it will proceed.

It's definitely an installer bug though.

That's exactly what I did to work around this bug.

We (Red Hat) should try to fix this before next release.
