I am trying to install ubuntu 8.04 on a vintage i386 and get the message "non-preset mode" on startup. The video card on this old beast is a Matrox Millennium (may be a Millennium II), vintage 1996. I can't get MGA to recognize the serial number, etc, so their tech support is a waste of time.
The display is a BenQ Q7T3 with a resolution of 1280 x 1024 at 75 Hz.
I'd appreciate ideas and guidance on how to perform a work-around.
Thanks for any help
