FC5 Install problem

I just got FC5 and I am having issues with installing it. When I get to the point where I should start the GUI portion of the install, my monitor gets all screwy. The UI is all distored, and I can only seen parts of the screen, the rest is black.

I have a dual monitor setup. One of my monitors is a widescreen and the other is standard. I have no clue how to fix this. Can someone give me some advice.

Maybe you could try text-mode installation, if it supports?
