Acer laptop TM6465WMLi with X1300:

The RC3.1 x86_64 live image boots fine into KMS mode. I can see the 
Fedora logo getting whiter in steps from bottom left towards the top 
right. I used a cd that was too small for the image (used overburn) so 
didn't get to the actual desktop. If that's important let me know and 
I'll burn it on a dvd.
