Description of Problem:
Hampton - beta1. Norwegian gui-installation from CD's.
I was given the option to choose framebuffer, but this did not work - probably because I
have a Matrox G400 card. I think it is a need for a warning there, 'doesn't work with all
video-cards' or something like that?
Was this selection of framebuffer in the bootloader configuration screen?

conf, with the non-working vga:
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.17-0.13)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.17-0.13 ro root=/dev/hda3 vga=773
Deferring this, as we have removed this functionality from the installer for
This feature is being dropped.
