You should use the text-mode installer instead, it should work fine on
your system. Look at the help screens at the boot up screen that comes
up when you boot the CD for the kernel option.. I think it's something
like "linux textmode".

I'm using Fedora on PII 300 box, a full-blown GNOME desktop by the way,
without any problems at all. It is pretty much as usable as WinXP,
speedwise. You definitely need more RAM though, 128 would be ok.
