Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
If your installing and it tries to start the graphical install, have you tried installing using the text install? When booting to the cd and it comes to the boot: option, type text and then <enter> and see if it starts the installation then. Your video most likely isn't supported or detected by the installer.
