All those distros i mentioned install without any problems in text mode (well, at least the ones that support text mode installation), but the graphics problem remains. I want to install FC5 for now or kubuntu
well, i really really REALLY hope someone here has seen this problem again and wants to help me. Thanks in advance.
My card is an XFX 6800GS XXX edition, has worked flawlessly until now and it is still working flawlessly under Windows or Mandriva

Your problem seems to be opensource nv driver bug.
