Is there anything I can try on cmdline other than textmode=1 to prevent
lockup on i845G when installation tries to switch to GUI? How do I tell
installer on cmdline to use something other than intel driver?

Installer uses fbdev as before.

I routinely forget that, and also forget where to look it up.

Thanks to javier on IRC for reminding me about i915.modeset=0, which works.

I added a Modeset section to with the best
information I knew. Maybe there's more it should say, and others can update

I believe it's easier to use 'nomodeset' than <driver>.modeset=0.

Now that I've written it on the Linuxrc wiki page maybe I can remember. :-)
