Good, but it would help to know what issue you get. In general, think about Spins (like Fedora Xfce) as derivative of the default Fedora. and the Live image as limitation of the Installation DVD. Therefore, when the first doesn't work, try the second. At last, try if you can the installation DVD (that you can have on a USB dongle with unetbootin for example. And last, report to us ;)

F18 sometimes won't install on systems with 2 video cards (1 external and 1 on the mobo). If you have 2, disable one in the BIOS, run the install, then re-enable it in the BIOS.

Also, some people have been able to install F17 when F18 won't install. If that works, but you still want F18, you may be able to upgrade from F17 to F18.

Can you provide any references for the claim that Fedora does not install on systems with multiple video cards, preferably as a bug report?
