Comments/Problems:Install went very smoothly until Video card selection, then it choked.  
I have a Diamond Stealth III s540 AGP card.  There were no selections for this card in the 
setup screen.  The system highlighted VESA for the driver.  It works, but the video resulution 
is 800 x 640 max.  Far too coarse for my taste.  What driver selection should I have used?

I need the correct driver for this card.  It is possible, Fedora detects and installs the card 

Incidently, I switched because you folks have Ham Radio packages that I want to try.  I can't 
make any Ham packages work in Fedora
