Hello. I've done a little experimenting with this, and I believe the
problem may be with monitor probing.
If you experience problems with RH 7.1 with a machine that has SIS 630
video, please try installing the O/S but specify text mode for the
default boot mode. Once the product is installed, run Xconfigurator
with the "--noddcprobe" option and configure X as you would like.
Additional keywords: Asus A7S-VM, A7S-VML, REDHAT, RED HAT.
