need help with FC4, blank screen when trying to boot

I just installed Fedora Core 4 on an old laptop ( IBM T20 ). Before installing FC4, I have win2k install on it. Installation appears to be completed . After installation, I reboot the system. I see the grub bootloader, able to see options to boot windows or FC4. Win2k able to boot without problems

When I try to boot FC4 , it will go through the steps of initaitlzing . storage network audio gets ok. After that the screen just turn black, about 10 secs later, it flash a bit of color of green and blue then it stays black. And I waited 15 mins and still just a black screen. Is it some kind of video card problem? The ibm t20 has a video card that uses the S3 savage chip. If anyone have some advice and suggestion they can give me, I would appreciate it. Thanks.
