Yes, try that.  Just the VGA BIOS though.

This really seems to be a VGA problem. 

I've found that if I do the "right" keystrokes the CDROM seems to run at the approprate times, like the install is working, but I just cannot see what's going on.

Also, the bottom third of the screen is filled with strange red and black bars.  There seems to be some white unreadable text in the top area of the screen that changes when I type in stuff.

Should I try the latest VGA bios and Plugins from BOCS?
