Description itris 2000-02-21 00:59:47 UTC
When choosing graphical or expert mode install, when entering X the screen
remains black. This is probably due to display settings the hardware can't
handle. rh 6.1 has it too.

a working XFree setup is:

Section "Monitor"
   Identifier      "MiTAC"
   VendorName      "Mitac"
   ModelName       "5033 T/H"
   HorizSync       31.5-100
   VertRefresh     70-100
   Modeline  "800x600"    69.65 800 864 928 1088 600 604 610 640 -HSync -
vsync
EndSection

Passed to a developer for consideration.

You can do a workaround also by doing a text install.
