As I said I tried the text based install and got the same problem.
When I boot from the boot.iso image how do I tell it to use the vesa driver.
If I press <tab> to edit the boot line then adding vesa doesn't work.
As a workaround I'm doing a live CD install on the boxes and I can then
install what I want on them later.
