================

hardware problem? maybe so
but I did install centos5.3 on this same cptr, no trouble at all.
So if hardware, something conflicting with f10 not centos.

the video card seems to be recognized


yes, I have tried f10livecd and it does come up in desktop.
But, trying the livecd  install I have very similar failure as I did from dvd.


fwiw here is "mga" lines from firstboot.X  from my dvd failure
