Default NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-8178-pkg2.run messed up installer display

I have an AMD x86_64 system with an nvidia 6000 128MB card, FC5 test1.
I downloaded NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-8178-pkg2.run
as root init 3.
sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-8178-pkg2.run

The display is messed up. All spaces are lacking. The select boxes and their status "accept" or "DoNotAccept" are not really recognizable.

a) Is there a possibility to use the Nvidia cards at a resolution of 1600x1200
without the nvidia drivers (somhow enable it in the bios vesa whatever)
b) Is there a possibility to install without the installer.
or to specify the options in advance by command line and use it non interactively?

Other ncurses applications work normal (mc, lynx)

The nvidia driver can be installed non-interactively with the -s (silent) option.
