[ubuntu] 11.10 won't boot on VIA EPIA-MS system

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello, I have ubuntu 11.10 loaded on an external hdd and it boots fine on my Intel Atom system. When I try to get it to load on my old VIA EPIA-MS system with Eden ESP10k processor, it will get to GRUB just fine but when I select which OS to boot into (Ubuntu 11.10), it goes to a black screen and stays there until the system simply restarts after a few minutes and goes back into GRUB. EDIT: On the VIA system, it does go to GRUB ok with the exception that the GRUB menu flows of the right and bottom of the screen and is cut off. So obviously there is some resolution issue there as well but I h (Hardware)
