I was trying to install Redhat ( RHEL 5) / CentOS 5 server on a Fujitsu Siemens ESPRIMO E5720 and got problem with the installer.

The base resolution for CentOS / RHEL Linux 5 is 800x600x32, which requires 2MB video memory. In order to boot or install Linux on the Fujitsu Siemens ESPRIMO E5720, set the reserved amount of video RAM to 8MB in BIOS.

You also need to add pci=nommconf parameter to grub.conf boot option file. While installing Linux on Fujitsu Siemens ESPRIMO E5720, you need to type the following at a boot prompt (excluding boot: word itself):
boot: linux pci=nommconf
Once server is installed, edit /etc/grub.conf or /boot/grub/grub.conf and append pci=nommconf at the end of kernel line:

title Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (2.6.18-128.el5)
	root (hd0,0)
	kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-128.el5 ro root=LABEL=/ console=tty0 console=ttyS1,19200n8 pci=nommconf
	initrd /initrd-2.6.18-128.el5.img
