[PLUG] upgrade problem with Fedora 10

I have a dual boot system (XP and Fedora Core 2.4).  I want to upgrade to Fedora 10 (downloaded ISO image and cut DVD on another computer).  I can't do the upgrade because the Anaconda installer seems to install the wrong video driver (this computer is at least 5 years old) and I can't interact with the graphical install.  I can boot up with Fedora 2.4 and get to the Gnome interface just fine.
So my question is:  How to I upgrade to Fedora 10?   I'm thinking:
1) since the right video driver is already on the system, all I have to do is get to the text install for Fedora 10.  But how?
2) buy an new video adapter and hope that Fedora 10 recognizes it correctly.

Life on your PC is safer, easier, and more enjoyable with Windows Vista®. See how
