Hi RAhdin,

I've also had this problem installing linux with Nvidia GeForce 2 Go. What I did was when the installation prompt comes up, I types linux text to go into the text mode instead of using graphical installation mode.

After you've got linux setup, you will need to get the drivers from Nvidia's website and install them so that graphical display works correctly.

Good luck

Cheers,
Alf829
