If they don't get probed correctly, then you end up in the text mode
installer.  If you have a situation where the installer X config works
but the post-install doesn't, *please* file in bugzilla (preferably with
both X configs -- the one for the installer environment is in /tmp
during the install and can be scp'd off or copied to a floppy).  

The problem is that on a non-trivial amount of hardware, the system will
hard lock if you have multiple X servers running.  So people would click
on "Test Settings" and they end up with no X configuration at all
written out.  It's a lot nicer if we get you a working configuration
(even if its not optimal) and then let you tweak it after the
installation where you're actually in an environment that's not full of
weird things.

Cheers,

Jeremy
