When it occurs the X server starts, the X cross cursor is briefly

with lots of what looks like static covering it (seems that it's the graphics
content from the boot loader which was still in the video memory). After
about 1 second of that the screen goes to all vertical stripes of different
colors and the system locks up solidly enough that the caps-lock key does not
change the state of the caps-lock LED.
I saw the same problem. I couldn't get reliably burned CD-RWs (old
ones that need replacing), so I tried an NFS/ISO install on a Compaq
IPaq P3 1GHz box with an i815 integrated graphics controller. And
xscreensaver seems to kill the graphics unrecoverably (X seems to crash,
and there are some vertical lines on the left portion of the screen),
but I can at least hit the power button and it shutdown gracefully.
I'm also still seeing the refresh screen problem described in
using the two XaaNo* workarounds listed there.
