Is that a liveCD and after what screen does the display go black? I assume you verified the checksum of your download and also verified the CD you burned.
Since there are probably issues with your video card, you might try the suggestions from the Installation Guide:

So yes I have checked the sum and the disk. It also works fine on a different machine.
My problem is I can get to the 10 second auto load I hit enter and go to the boot menu with verify and boot, boot and 2 other options.
I can hit tab enter the edit command and type "nomodeset" getting me to a black screen were I can hit CRTL-ALT-F2 and get to a command terminal.
What I need to know is how do I or can get F12 to load using default or other graphics drivers.

Installation BLACK SCREEN <<<<SOLVED>>>>
In the BOOT Menu, Press TAB while highlighting "BOOT" Option
Just add "nomodeset" to the end of the text..This disables Kernel Mode Setting and this really got my F12 running.
I m posting this from F12.
