Try performing a text mode installation, and then configuring
the video driver afterward by running:

    system-config-display --reconfig

This will generate a configuartion which uses the "nv" driver or
the "vesa" driver (I'd have to doublecheck).  If the "nv" driver
does not work properly for running X, you can file a bug report
in X.Org bugzilla at http://bugs.freedesktop.org, and Nvidia may
be able to investigate the problem and provide a bugfix.

If the "nv" driver doesn't work, please try manually editing the
config file and trying the "vesa" driver.  If that works, please
indicate this in an update.

Another option, is to install via text mode, and upgrade to the
rawhide version of xorg-x11 and try the newer driver that is

Please update the report with the status of the above tests, and
we'll try to determine if we can work around this issue if necessary.

Thanks in advance.
