And now that I am trying even that (clean install from a new CD, after
backing up /home), it is not working even.

The CD boots fine, and works well, except the fonts are all messed up. They
are too big and I can't read the dialogs to proceed with the install.

It looks very similar to a previous problem I had. You can see a screenshot

One difference: my laptop is 64 bits, the one with problems is 32 bits.
