Never heard such a stupid e-mail!
If you do not like the installer, learn how to fix it and do it! I came
from Linux and found the installer different to Debian installer, but as
soon as I understood it I think it is great! You are the amateurish, not
the installer. Your card is well supported in X window, it has nothing
to do with kernel driver.
You need to read the manual first, you can find it in the install CD, or
in the /usr/share/doc/ directory.
