Description of problem:
I reported this is Core 1 once Bug Number 112112

Description of problem:
I have Samsung 191T+ monitor connected to Hercules GForce3 64Mb over 
DVI. Durring installation (Anaconda) can't find the monitor and when 
it is tryingto start X it just goes blank. If I specify 
resolution=1280x1024 X starts but all noisy. I tried also noprobe but 
that did not work. I have this same setup under Suse 9.0 and Suse 
installer worked just fine.

I found that this only happens when connected to DVI connector. It 
works with old VGA connector. So it seems it is a default nvidia 
driver problem of some sort. 

It does finds the Video Card fine but when Connected to DVI anaconda 
prints Unknown Monitor. Under VGA it finds SAmsung. Not the right 
model (Samsung 191T+) but something close that works.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1.9 - test1 

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Just boot
2.And try to install
