Subject: gdm doesn't start with sarge installation
Package: gdm
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

*** Please type your report below this line ***
I have successfully installed Etch from the testing installation CD.
However when I go to install Sarge from it's install CD the same way I
installed Etch gdm will not start up, instead you get a fuzzy screen.  I have installed it three times with the same result each time. The screen after being fuzzy for a minute sends me to a command promp and says to file a bug report so I am.

How to see the bug:
1. Find a HP Pavilion 7845 computer.
2. Install Sarge from the network installation CD.
3. Only check desktop environment option.
4. Always say autodetect for hardware.
