on booting of fc3 screen goes blank

I have tried installing Fedora 3 at least 4 times now, and

each time everything installs fine, until the reboot ,when system

reboot i can see grub asking for selection between windows and fc3 .

Grub start loading fc3 and afer few seconds I
see a few flashes of really strange colors and then screen goes

black ican see progress bar but everything else is black out I
see a few flashes of really strange colors.
After that it just goes blank and everything stops there.
Rebooting doesn't help either.

i have intel pentium 3 ,800mhz processor, my graphics card is on board

When you see the selection between FC and Windows, hit 'E' on the line for FC. You will see a mini-editor, move to the end of the line that starts with 'kernel'. At the end of that line, delete the word 'rhgb'. Then hit 'Enter' then hit 'B' to boot.
