Redhat 9 on Armada 110

Hello,
We have a bunch of Armada 110s and I wanted to install RH9 on them. The graphical install would not work but I did manage to complete the install using the text installer. On boot everything goes fine until the graphical part comes up then it just dies. I've upgraded the BIOS to the latest but still no go. The video is detected as generic Trident Cyberblade

Hello!

You can boot in single mode and change
the default init to init 3 so the X
would try to up, then you could work in text
mode.
/etc/inittab
default runlevel from 5 -> 3
