Fedora 10 installation on Sony Notebook VGNFW235J



Have a strange issue trying to install Fedora 10 on a students new Sony 
Notebook. The initial  install process has the screen going to a weird gray 
screen after the cd process, so the gui process would not work. Then tried it 
with a text install, and the process went thru completely, but on boot only 
came up with a text login. Startx would give the same gray screen....

I was able to copy an xorg.conf file from a machine with vesa setup, and this 
time startx did come up, but it never did the startup process that is normal.

Is there some option or something that needs to be done to get a good install 
on the Sony notebook??

Thanks.
