* X11 configuration during installation is totally broken in Beta5 due
to a bug in package manager. Instead of the native X11 driver fbdev or
even vesa driver will be configured. In order to create a valid X11
configuration stop xdm ("rcxdm stop") and use SaX2 for configuration
("sax2 -r"). ATI users should update the radeon driver first before
executing SaX2. Otherwise the result will likely be a blank
screen. Driver RPMs for i386/x86_64 are attached to Bug 153367.

Meanwhile I've added this information to

Best regards,
Stefan
