Thank you Mr. McIntyre.

I have now tried Ctrl+Alt+F1 during the useless X cycle.
For some odd reason simply going to a console like this stops the X 
cycling and makes the boot continue to the live desktop.

I have not tried to log into the console shell, since Ctrl+Alt+F1 
alone did made the boot continue.

Unfortunately I still have no working Edgy.

I can indeed install now, but I can not log into the installed KDE 

KDM takes my user name and password, and then it just returns me to 
KDM again.

I have tried Ctrl+Alt+F1, stopping KDM, reconfiguring xserver with the 
correct video drivers, screen resolutions, etc., starting KDM.

No luck.

Any ideas?

Or do I really have to deem Edgy 100% useless?

Best regards

Johnny :o)
