First, try adding to your kernel boot line from grub [when grub appears hit the enter key and use your cursor to move around]
your kernel boot line should look like this
....rhgb quiet mode=vesa resolution=800x600
then hit the escape key and then b to boot
If that does not work then, boot from your install disc and type at the boot prompt:
follow along with the on-screen instructions [no need for network] at the last prompt type
[vi is a text editor]
use you cursor to move around ..... cursor to the Device Section and make sure that
is present, if it is something else, then change it to
then move to the Screen Section and make sure it looks like this
Viewport 0 0
Assuming that you monitory can natively accept "1280x1024"
to edit something using vi, just type i [for insert] and make your changes, when you are finished hit the esc key and then SHIFT ZZ to save and write the changes.
Then type exit and reboot
If this works for you then you can type system-config-display and make sure you have the correct hardware configuration and install the ati drivers from the livna repo and you should be good to go. http://www.fedorafaq.org/#radeon
If this does not work then do a "search" for the word "range" in the installation forum as there are many with a similar issue as well as solutions.
