Maybe a problem with your video chipset, but you don't identify the
laptop so it's hard to say. It's probably fixable though.

My laptop is a Thinkpad x61 tablet from Lenovo... Maybe I should find a way to configure the video card from the live cd, the thing is - I cannot do that because I have no idea what's going on the screen as far as text goes.
By-the-way, I ran Fedora 9 live cd on a thinkpad t42 (same cd), and everything went well as far as video goes.

Same Fedora version? Same amount of RAM? I'm surprised but go with
32-bit if you're nervous about it.

No, I think I will try the 64bit version... and if it has the same behavior, I will just change it to 32bit.

Thanks for your quick response.
