The current system I'm playing with is pretty new LFS/BLFS, but I've had
the same issue on previous attempts at using 7.0. Apart from X itself,
the differences are mostly just a newer kernel ( vs current
2.6.14), plus whatever has changed in LFS SVN since October. I don't
think BLFS differences are relevant, since the problem occurs before
anything other than X is installed.

No framebuffer - I've never had much luck getting it to work on an
nVidia card, and I generally boot straight to X anyway (via gdm).

Ok, I can give that a try - particularly some of the smaller widescreen
modes like 1400x1050 and 1280x960 in case it's the widescreen thing
that's confusing it.
