  i was already running that kernel version based on a recent "yum
update", and there is no mention of "nomodeset" in grub.conf.  i was
running the 6.12.1-9 version of the ati driver, so all i had to do was
grab the newer ati driver from koji, i updated that, rebooted, but i'm
still stuck with 1024x768.  i'll try rebooting with "nomodeset" right
away and let you know what happens.
