Rereading your posting, it sounds like you are having a problem with the 
installer. I will try out the installer from the DVD tomorrow. Meanwhile 
you might need to run the installer in text mode.

I might be able to capture what is going on through the serial port to 
hyper-terminal on the computer that I have which uses the 865G.

What happens if you pass Linux resolution=800x600 to the installer?
