Summary:  Cannot start install of RedHat 8.0 when booting from CD or Floppy

Original Submission:  Attempted to start a system install of RedHat 8.0 from CD 
and was unable to get the virtual system to boot using both the CD or the 
standard boot floppy.

The Display had problems and the install process did not seem to proceed from 
what I could see.

This is either a display issue, where the display is not being properly 
updated, or some other problem that prevents the proper booting of the kernel.  
I cannot tell.

The config file attached is based upon the NT config file included in the CVS

This really seems to be a VGA problem.  

I've found that if I do the "right" keystrokes the CDROM seems to run at the 
approprate times, like the install is working, but I just cannot see what's 
going on.

Also, the bottom third of the screen is filled with strange red and black bars. 
 There seems to be some white unreadable text in the top area of the screen 
that changes when I type in stuff.

Should I try the latest VGA bios and Plugins from BOCS?
