OK, I built this system and I'm getting stuck during boot.
I'm trying to use a Fedora 12 live USB to start with.
The messages I see before the video goes into
the weeds are:

pci 0000:00:00.0: BAR 3: address space collision on of device
[drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: Pointer to BIT loadval table invalid
[drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: 0xD6B5: Init table command not found: 0x8C
[drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: 0xDEA4: Init table command not found: 0x00

I've tried 32 and 64 bit Live USBs and I've tried nomodeset.

I'm assuming the problem is related to the video card based
on the last messages I see, but I'm not sure.  I haven't tried
seeing if the system is alive via a serial console, so I can't
tell if it's only video that is not working.

Any suggestions?



PS - I'm going to try to make a Live USB mythbuntu 9.10
next and see if that works any better.  I don't have an
optical drive yet, so I tried Fedora first since I know how
to make live USBs with Fedora.
