I apologize, but I went back and read the installation notes and that was not a valid option, you may have to do a text install. http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/fedora-install-guide-en/fc5/ch-beginninginstallation.html

try typing this
linux video=ofonly resolution=1024x768 and give that a shot and see what happens, I had the same problem and that solved it for me. Let me know... Good Luck!
