Fedora 8 and nvidia GeForce 7300 issues?

Fedora or Ubuntu, same problem...Trying to install Fedora 8 on disk with existing XP OS..(Dell XPS 400) Just as install begins..gui goes weird..Just series of vertical lines.(like digital signals going to analog monitor?) Suspect interface problem with my nvidia GeForce 7300 card..Anybody with similar (beginner's) problem(s)?

I have the GeForce 7300GS card, the built-in X driver (nv) works fine, and the propriety one works good enough.

Try installing it from text mode instead.
