Im new to linux and i don't know much about it.
This week end I installed Mandriva 2006 on a Toshiba Satellite M45.
Try this :
1 - When the computer is POSTing hit F12 and select CD drive as to boot from
2 - In the first linux display, hit F1 and then type : linux noauto (this will prevent auto detection of the PC-components.)
3 - After the installation is complete, leave the proposed graphic card config. It will not work but the installation can be completed normaly and you can boot your linux in text mode.
So far, that's where I am. Trying to find out what to chose to make the display run fine.
Have a nice day !
