Please read what I wrote. I boot from the boot.iso disk and get the install 
menu.

I now have 2 choices:

1.  select an option from the menu, where can I type in "linux vesa" there

2.  press <TAB> whereupon I get the > vmlinuz initrd-initrd.img prompt
     I can type in "linux vesa" there but it has no affect.

Thanks,

Tony
