I'm trying to install Fedora Core 2 on my Dell Inspiron 1000 laptop.

When I first try to run the installer (default and nofb) I would get a mix of swirling colors and jagged lines. After some searching on the internet, I decided that upgrading my BIOS would do the trick, as it helped some others.

It helped slightly (no more swirling, just a solid grey with little lines going all across). My monitor is still detected as : Unknown.

Has anyone had any luck installing FC2 on an Inspiron 1000?
