The 2.6.17 kernel hangs right after it attempts to switch video modes -
it just sits there with the following:

Console: switching to mono PROM 80x34
Real Time Clock Driver v1.12ac
atyfb: 3D RAGE XL (Mach64 GR, PCI-33) [0x4752 rev 0x27]
atyfb: 8M SGRAM (1:1), 29.498928 MHz XTAL, 230 MHz PPL, 83 Mhz MCLK, 63
MHz XCLK

I thought I had boot the 2617 kernel before on this system from the
same CD - I've tried both universal and minimal install CD with the
same results.

Not sure why. Otherwise, I would have provided the dmesg output from it
too.
