Cannot install Fedora with X300 PCI-E 128MB display card

I tried to boot from a Fedora 12 installation DVD. My machine configuration is:

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-965P-DS4
Display Card: X300 PCI-E 128MB

After the "Welcome to Fedora 12!" screen, I then click on either:

Install or upgrade an existing system
Install system with basic video driver

[both display the same following screen and then the machine halt on]
Loading vmlinuz ............................
Loading initrd.img ..........................................
Probing EDD (edd=off to disable) ... ok

The number and cap lock have no responses. When I changed to another display card, it has no problem at all. I appreciate very much if anyone can give me some advices to solve this problem with X300 PCI-E 128MB display card.

Thanks in advance for your help.

What video driver is FC 12 using for the card. Does /var/log/Xorg.0.log show "flgrx" ?
