Description Dylan Pack 2002-08-23 18:26:18 UTC

Description of problem:
During the hard drive install it auto detects my graphics card correctly. 
TNT2 Nvidia card. However, it only detects 4mb of memory when it actually has
32mb. That's fine so I change it to 32mb and continue with the installation.
Later once its all done I go into "Display" on the Gnome menu and it says "4mb"
again I re-select 32mb and it works and runs much faster! Just an annoyance more
than anything. If I never checked it would be going slow the whole time. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install select 32mb for video card
2.In display it shows 4mb
3.Change to 32mb

Expected Results:  Should change to 32mb in install
