Description of problem:
After booting from the Redhat Linux 9 CD and pressing [Enter] on my notebook,
the screen displays just some colors. If I try to change the console, the colors
appear there as well.
Adding parameters like "noprobe" or "lowres" didn't help.
The notebook has a SiS630 graphics card.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from CD
2. Start the installation
Actual Results: The screen fills with colors.
Expected Results: The installation should start.
I installed Redhat on other machines from the same CD's.
Redhat Linux 8.0 works fine on my notebook, but not the new version!

Does 'nofb' help?
Yes, that help! Great!
Thanks a lot!
But what does "nofb" do? And why couldn't I find it anywhere?
