From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.3) Gecko/20010808

Description of problem:
Basic installation 7.1 installation of X failed to give a working version of X

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install 7.1 on Dell Inspiron 2500
2.Select 16 bit 800x600 as video mode

Actual Results:  The machine locks hard on any 16 bit mode.

Expected Results:  Should start X properly (or at least fail without
crashing the machine).

Additional info:

Upgrading (from raw hide) to the latest XFree86 (4.1.0) and upgrading to a
more recent kernel (2.4.8) allowed 16 bit display at 800x600.
