    Did you do an "MD5SUMS check on the iso before you burnt it?

    I need to know more info:
    did you get past 1st reboot?
    Did you get to the part about names & passwords?
    If so, type "3" at the bootsplash, yeah, boot the install
    that should boot you to the command line at runlevel 3
    login as "root"
    password
    type: "sax2 -m 0=vesa"
    sax2 should start and you can setup the display using the vesa driver
    when you are done, save
    reboot

    Now search the forum for video cards like yours & go about setting up the driver for it.

    If you didn't get past 1st reboot, then I would reburn the iso at 8x and try the install again.

    Good luck.
