Has anyone managed to install CentOS 4.2 on an HP dv5000 64 bit laptop?

I boot from the install cd, and all of the options I have tried ( return, linux text, linux
noprobe, linux lowres ) have had the same result: some text scrolls by really fast ( looks like
the start of the install), then the screen goes blank with no activity of any kind.

The processor is the turion 64, and it has ATI video. The odd thing is, I was actually able to
boot knoppix 4.0 to repartition it for dual boot

any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
