    I finally got this solved! It is now early 2019 and I have antiX-17 installed on the old P-III. The answer was to use “cheat codes” and blacklisting to force antiX-17 to use the nouveau driver. Apparently the installer does not correctly choose the nouveau module on my hardware. We had to force the issue. See the post here:

    video better in v16 than in v17?

    Thanks for everyone’s help. And tonight’s beers were a Guiness Extra Stout and a Saint Pauli Girl. Cheers!

    Solution:

    The cheat codes allowed me to get past whatever was hanging up the installer. I don’t know exactly why but it worked. Without these cheat codes I couldn’t get the antiX installer to work unless I chose the failsafe option. And the failsafe option didn’t allow me to setup the correct video driver, at least I couldn’t figure it out.

    cheat codes “xorg=nouveau” and “bp=b9” followed by “modprobe nouveau” is what worked to get the installer to finish.

    I have a Pentium D with Asus P5VD2-X and Nvidia 9600 GSO and the cheat for me is: pci=nomsi
