Question XEN flavour stops GUI with Nvidia card

I struggled installing FC6 on a 32 Intel CPU with NV6200 card:
- If I start installation in graphics mode, I get coloured lines on the screen when CPU enters graphics mode.
- If I install in text mode, installation is OK and FC starts in text mode. When I issue "init 5" command from the text mode screen, the same mess appears on the screen.
Kernel version is 2.6.18-1.2798fc6xen. I try installing with skipddc, noprobe, resolution= . . . . - no difference.
/etc/X11/xorg.conf has a line:
driver "nv"
I read, that "..NV does not support XEN . . " Is this the problem in my case? How can I install FC6 without XEN? Or can I enter GUI some other way with Nvidia card in the CPU? I had previously installed from same DVD on a CPU with other than NV graphics card and FC6 works OK.
Please, help.
