Thinkpad A22p/Improper Video on Install

I'm trying to install FC8 on my old, creaky Thinkpad A22p (ATI Rage 
Mobility Rage 3) and the video from the graphical installer is not 
correct.  I get about 1/3 of the orginal screen, then 1/3 of the third 
1/3 of  screen followed by that 1/3 again.

If I use the text installer, X will not start when running the first 
time after installing.
