And make ABSOLUTELY sure you dont have any nvidia packages installed. Also, disable KMS.
Create a /etc/modprobe.d/nouveau.conf and put in it
options nouveau modeset=0
just to be sure.

Prior to installation remove your xorg.conf (or rename it). Let the installer configure it.
Why in the hell would you want the Nouveau driver?

It's crap wrt to OpenGL support.
