Repeteadly failing on this LapTop, several times.The pcmcia.img and
pcmciadd.img disks made twice, same results all the time.

Steps to Reproduce:
The X server is dying when we get past the splash screen. I'm installing a
system on the box so we look at this in a post-install environment.
booting with "nofb" should fix this.
can we have this confirmed? does "nofb" get around the problem?
