Funny you should mention that - I just went through this and pestered the list about this very
subject about a week ago. I have an HP Pavillion with an ATI card, and the video to the laptop
display blanked in X. I had to use an external monitor to do the install. Once the install was
complete, the video worked in VESA mode.

Also the hard drive is very slow - there does not seem to be a way to enable DMA mode. Someone
else on the list had this same problem.
