I'm trying to load Fedora 17 (32bit/Gnome version) on an IBM xseries 305 but I can't get any video. I get through the "Start Fedora 17" screen and the blue/white progress bar, but as soon as the next screen the monitor blanks out. I can't get any video. I've modified the boot options, removed "quiet" and "rhgb", set vga=771 etc, but still nothing. The machine has an ATI video card so disabling NVidia drivers doesn't seem to apply. Any help would be appreciated.

update Fedora 17 LXDE x32 shows the same behavior
