Thanks. I included "xdriver=vesa" plus several other parameters in
various combinations, all to no avail. F9 installs (I can hear it play
some music/sounds) but I don't have any video. As I said, I'm running F8
with the vesa driver and it works fine. I have no idea why F9 is such a
pain to install.
