Yes! I've been doing QA Testings with three diferent machines that I have:

1. Quad Core Intel Abit IP35 Pro, Nvidia GTX260
2. Eeepc 10000H
3. AMD Athlon X 2 with RADEON HD integrated

The QA Testing tells you to press "Install Gnome", not go into a live
session, and that's the point because the first resolution it finds is
600x800 on one of my machines, and just because of that little extra
height of the title bars on the windows it hides the buttons at the

For the specs of my machines the oldest one is the eeepc 1000H and all
the installs work perfectly there, because it finds the 1024x768
resolution first.
I know its the monitors fault, but the normal ubuntu install does not
add the extra height on the windows so you can still see the buttons
on the screen with low resolution.
