    I have only one  CD drive, Plextor CD burner,
    the video card is ATI 3D RAGEII+ PCI,
    a USB mouse and MS keyboard.

    This same machine could run the May release.

    For this release I tried first 3 VESA configuration
    in the AOS.PAR:




   None of them is working, the screen is black, no cursor.

    Thanks for your help.
