Which video does your system have?

What is the last information printed on the screen before the hang?

I cant remember exactly but something like: 

Starting installer... 


Now loading installer...

I do know that it is the very last message b4 the GUI comes up. 

I have a trident CyberBlade Ai1 AGP(42) video card

has alot of fixes.
