Using "system-config-display --noui" generated an xorg.conf file using
the vesa driver, and I now have X working in both F13 and Rawhide.  It's
probably a VirtualBox problem, not Fedora's fault.  I'm more concerned
with the failure of the graphical install itself.  It happened even when
I told it "Install system with basic video driver", and Alpha is
scheduled for about a week from now, so I want to report it in the RC4
test matrix if it's appropriate.

I haven't run F12 as a vbox guest so far.
