F12 install stops at screen switch (language select)


I had the crazy idea to try F12 again on an IBM system (SurePOS 565,
specific Point-of-Sale hardware, with 82915G/GV/910GL), on which RHEL4
was the last RHEL/Fedora version I could install without problems
(see also https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=339361 for some
comments about RHEL5 on this system).

Well, while graphics didn't work at some point in older releases
(I don't remember which Fedora I tried last, maybe F9 or F10),
now the install stops even earlier, just after:

   running /sbin/loader
   detecting hardware
   waiting for ...

Then the screen blanks (instead of showing the language selection)
and I can't do anything more than CTRL-ALT-DEL.

Any suggestions?
