	I don't know how to fix this in slinky, but when I get a "no
screens found" message it usually means:
	- I am trying to use a resolution that is too high for my video
card and/or monitor to handle
	- I am using a color depth that is too high.

	I would start by setting the colour depth to 8 bits (i.e. 256
colours) with a screen resolution of 640x480. However, I don't know
exactly how to do this with the installer and/or modifying the XF86Config
