Description of problem:
After Anaconda detects my video card and display correctly the display skews
when it goes into graphics mode. Only a display power reset corrects it.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Begin beta installation, verify all CDs
2.Detect my Radeon VE video card
3.Detect my Sony SDM-M81 LCD monitor
4.When system goes into graphics mode the video is totally skewed and unreadable.
5. After resetting power on my LCD the display is just fine.

Actual Results:  Display returned to normal

Expected Results:  Should have a normal video display without having to reset
the LCD power.

Additional info:

I'm using a DVI-DVI connection from the Radeon to the Sony LCD.

I would try adding this to the boot command line:


where <res> is something like '1024x768' (without the quotes) and should match
the native resolution of the LCD.
