What video driver is it trying to use? It sounds like it is using
the VESA or VGA drivers. Someone else will have to tell you the
correct driver for that card, and then you can check to see if you
have it installed.

Explicitly loaded mga,ko which is video driver loaded in FC4. Still getting 800 X 400. I think there are more things missed up at install time. My guess is FC5 install used smp kernel and fail to detect hardware properly. I had this issue in I think FC3 time. Luckly in FC3 it used single processor kernel and if I remember correctly most of the hardware worked OK, I had issues with SMP kernel. At that time I ended up buiding my own SMP kernel.

In FC5 I think it used SMP for insstall (that was only kernel after booting up in FC5).

The best way is to reinstall FC5 and tell it to use non-SMP.

Is there an option to tell installer to use non-SMP ? any other suggestions ?
