Problem Installing FC5

I just got a new computer HP Pavillion w5320la and I want to install linux on it (FC5). However I can get the graphic installation to work properlly. I get a screen with all kinds of colors and it doesn´t go anyware. I guess I can install it using the text version, but how do i get the graphical mode to work. I want to be able to type startx.

Does anybody have any idea?

I forgot to say that I had this problem before with another hp and FC3

I fixed the problem adding

Option "noaccel"

In the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Will this work for FC5?
