Fedora 9 install problem

I downloaded and verified a fedora 9 net install cd. I burned the cd
and verified the cd from the built in verify function.

I then installed fedora 9 on a test box and liked it and decided to
migrate my real working box to it.

The graphical install fails on the new box, Anaconda starts auto
detects the video card properly, then within 10 seconds the box locks
up tight, only a hard reboot will work.

A text mode install was successful, but the text based first time boot
wizards graphic configuration locks the system up.

I restarted the box in text mode (runlevel 3) and noticed the following:

X based config tools work fine.  but startx fails and locks up the system.
As does system-config-display.

I have an MSI K9VGM-V mobo that uses an integrated VIA chrome9 graphic adapter.

Can someone point me in the right direction please, I just wanna get
this installed.
