I may be seeing something similar on a 32-bit ThinkPad A22p with ATI
Rage Mobility 128 video. Unless I select base bideo during initial
installation, the right 1/3 of an 800x600 window in a 1600x1200 display
is torn/garbled such that the Next and Cancel buttons are effectively
masked. After the initial reboot I get a normal full screen with
firstboot and everything is fine. It would be nice if this problem could
be fixed, but my A22p is so old it's hardly worth the effort.
