I just bought a new emachine T3508 and tried to load Fedora 5 on it. It boots from the DVD fine and while booting Linux it says that it detected my monitor Q770 and then colored snow appears in the screen. Absoluately nothing readable. I tried a different model of monitor but still get colored snow after it says it detected the monitor. The video hardware is ATI RADEON XPRESS 200 SERIES.
GPARTED also has the following problem:
0000:00:13.0 OHCI: BIOS handoff failed (BIOS BUG?) ffffffff
GPARTED boots fine from the CD and then Linux begins to boot and after a couple minutes I get the above error.
