Description slary61 1999-12-31 21:41:26 EST
I'm using a SIS 5598 video card
I'm upgrading from 6.0.  The Redhat logo screen is oversized, then when
the language page comes up, all the choices are blacked out.
Note:  A similar thing happened when I tried to upgrade X to 3.3.5

You should also be able to use text mode to complete the upgrade ... the SIS
5598 is known to have issues with XFree86 3.3.6 ... (see
http://www.redhat.com/support/hardware/intel/62/rh6.2-hcl-i.ld-10.html section
"10.40 Tier 3 Video Cards") ...also, there is a XFree86 site that has more
information (note it is not a Red Hat site):
