Stuck at Blank Screen when installing OEL5 on Dell Optiplex 745?

Have anyone got an issue that screen goes blank just after running anaconda when installing OEL5 on Optiplex 745?
there is simple solution for this(god, I spent almost 2hours to figure this out :-( )
I saw on mailing list that there is a known issue with auto-probing video driver. so
first tried with "linux noprobe" and then guess what? I couldn't even type on my keyboard.

Solution is pretty simple as below.
On Grub command, Type like this : linux xdriver=vesa

then it will go smoothly without seeing any dumb blank screen.
