Problem with graphics during install on ATI radeon

I have a Thinkpad Z60m with ATI Radeon Mobility X600 graphics (LCD is
1280x800).  When I start the installer (rawhide on 2007-08-10) and X
starts, the display is messed up.  In the upper left, I get the "normal"
install display at maybe 800x600 (just a guess).  The rest of the screen
is garbage except for the pointer.  When I try to click however, I have
to have the pointer at the place the button would be if the video was
stretched to full screen (does that explanation make sense?).

I switched to a text console to check something and switched back, and
then the "normal" part was shifted part of the way off the screen and I
couldn't see enough to use the keyboard for install, so I gave up.

I opened this in bugzilla against anaconda, but I'm not sure if it
should go there or against xorg-x11-drv-ati.  I'm posting it here in the
list so if some person knows better they can point me correctly.

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
