If the graphical installer worked fine when installing FC4 but fails 
when trying to install FC6, I do not know what caused the regression.

The regression might be caused by the reduced xorg.conf file not having 
adequate information for the installer to get things right for the GUI 
installer. The FC4 xorg.conf was more elaborate than the one used for 
FC6 and F7. The driver or the hardware is probably not the direct cause 
of the blank screen with the newer installer.

linux xdriver=vesa should work if xdriver=nv does not work.
