Is that the graphical installer? My LX164 has (of all things) just a
lowly Trident card with 512KB of video ram. I think it's an ISA. But

I can't install with the "Boot installed system" option, either. One of

Oh good. I don't really feel like installing a new version of MILO.
Thanks for your feedback!
