dear Fritz,

I've tried to switch back between LCD and the VGA external. Even when
the 1st time I encountered this, actually I was on my VGA with KVM
switch. Both LCD and VGA external produce white screen only.
"nofb" option and "resolution=800x600" option already tried also.
Then I proceed the installation with "linux text". But after the system
is installed, it still cannot run the X properly. What annoys me also is
that I also cannot access the virtual console, because the screen is
either blank white or greenish. Only when I did Ctrl-Alt-Backpspace to
stop X it becomes normal, but the only option left is just to reboot.

I gave up and back to FC3.
