I posted this last week but did not get any replies. Related?

"Now that F8 is nearing its EOL, I decided to upgrade my F8 system to
F9.

I launched preupgrade, selected F9, and completed the download. When I
rebooted, anaconda launched but when X started, after it correctly
detected my graphics card, a nVidia 8800, it chose the wrong settings
either for the card or the monitor resulting in a blank screen.

I was able to <ctrl><alt> <F1> to see some anaconda messages and after
I rebooted again, I was able to boot back into into F8 with no problem.

Is there something I can add to the boot line to tell anaconda to use
my existing Xorg.conf file?"

Thanks,
Steve
