Hello All,

I tried to install FC6, and got some problems with graphics. To begin with 
the installer CDs would not recognize my graphics card (which worked sort of 
fine with old installation of redhat E3 I think, card is ATI RV350 AP Radeon 
9600, however, I should note that it took some doing to make it work with my 
monitor, Sony sdm-p232w (1920/1200). When I say it worked sort of fine, 
there were cases (every couple of days) that when I logout the login screen 
would get snowy (like if you had really bad antenna in the old days with 
 TV) and then I would have to kill X couple of times (CTRL-ALT-Backspace) to 
get it back to nice graphics...

So than I thought I'll switch back to installing FC5, for which I have a DVD 
(came with some book I got few months ago). Now that started OK (it did 
start the install in graphics mode) but there was some error on media 
further down installation...

I wonder if someone has FC5 handy (CDs or DVD) so that I can try to go that 

I realize that it would be best to actually fix the graphics problem, but I 
am desperate to find the fastest solution as this is my main office machine 
(typing this email n a dinky little laptop...).

Thanks, Boris
