Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot: text
My hardware is a sis730s based motherboard with a 1G Duron processor.
boot: linux noathlon
with no change.
Is this one of those boards with built-in video but without videoram ?
I've seen one board where the bios forgot to mark the main memory it used for
videoram as "reserved" so that both linux and the videocard use it.
Could you try passing
where xxx is 33 Mb less than the actual memory you have (or whatever you set up
for "shared" video memory in the bios)
email@example.com you guessed it right.
that solved it. booting with a reduced mem.
I don't know if high praise is allowed in bug reports, but well I've done a
dozen RHinstalls over about 6 yrs, never had a problem installing, and never
made a bug report. 5 minutes after my first it was solved.
BIOS problem so one we can't fix ourselves
