Thanks for the reply. I tried installing it a second time with the
same results. Then I tried a different monitor and a third
installation and it worked O.K. So it had a problem configuring the
previous monitor. I can probably now tweek xorg.conf now for another
monitor. Strange as the monitor that gives me trouble I successfully
use with a Ubuntu x86 Hoary computer.
