I am having problems getting the live cd of fedora 16 to work its the 32 bit and the Gnome one. Well it will boot up alright and then it will do the screen with the line that runs across. Well my problem comes next I can tell it starts up xwindows and it usually pulls up a message my monitor mode is not right with that one. So I can tell it adjusts the mode that works with my monitor well then it sorta puts up the round cursor that has the marks spinning around. Well then it does this and the cd still works a while then it stops and says there is a error and that I need to log out which you can't it locks up. Can I get the CD to work in a text mode where I can see the error or is there a way I can find out what is going on. can and will fedora run on my machine. Is there a way I can get this to work to run fedora dang everything is different last fedora I used was like 6 and it worked good but this one jeez.

Please tell us what videocard you have as @bodhi.zazen requested. Also, have you verified the iso and tested the media?
