.. Been running Warty on this laptop (hybrid) since release and everything
is fine. Tried the Hoary live preview and everything seems fine 'til it
tries to "startX" then it fails with a message that includes:

Can't start xserver.
No video bios modes for chosen depth.

The motherboard is intel with onboard video etc.
2.4 ghz processor, 1 gig ram

Just thought I'd mention it as I am Linux challenged and don't know how to
fix it :)
