Installing Fedora 10 on an ECS A740GM-M v1.0 Motherboard using “radeon.blacklist=yes”

On an ECS A740GM-M v1.0 motherboard, the fedora10 i386 installer hangs after reaching the /sbin/loader stage (just before the first actual dialog box is displayed).

The only kernel boot parameter that seems to help is:

radeon.blacklist=yes

which can be appended to the installer kernel line by pressing the Tab key at the DVD boot menu, then typing space and the parameter.
