During the installation, you will have been asked to enter the desired
resolution and colour depth - seems you entered a value which is too
high, and which your graphics card doesnt support.

The 2 MB of memory on your graphics card will only be sufficient e.g.
for 1024x768 at 16bpp, not for 24bpp like you seem to have chosen.
