I tried on a system with the ATI card and the installation seems to bail 
out at the welcome screen. I don't think that the bailout is card specific.

I started a text install and it did not detect the currently installed 
FC version installed. It did get to where you choose the installation 
type. I bailed out after it did not detect an existing installation.

Regarding the GUI install problem, I could only think that you might use 
a digital camera and take shots of screen 1, screen 3 and screen 4. You 
could do that with the alt-F1, alt-F3 and Alt-F4 keys. Chacking bugzilla 
might be worth a look to see if anyone ele attempt a jan 23 installation.
