i'm totally new to linux, and am trying to install Fedora Core 8 on my machine, which is running an nVidia 8800 GTX card.
At the point in the installation sequence where the program detects the nVidia card, it searches for drivers, then the screen goes blank.
Your problem is not similar at all. Moreover, this is not a NVIDIA driver problem, it's rather a Fedora problem. You should ask on some Fedora-related forum.
