If the gui installer *thinks* that it can't find a video card, there
is no video card selection list on install.  It will just display
the monitor selection.  There is no way to force it to let you pick
a video card.  X won't install properly if you don't have a selection
for it.  Even after the install, using rpms to install all of X there
is something missing.  It should at least put in a low level VGA
server, since the gui install shows the screen properly.

Hardware: IBM PC300GL 6277 with S3 Trio 3D card on board.

This issue is resolved in the latest installer available in beta.
