When you get the error message, hit the Escape key and continue with the installation.

Thanks David, but nothing happens when I hit the escape key. All I can really do is click the CLOSE button on the message, and closes down the Install process. Any other thoughts?

do some googling on this. I seem to remember there was a hack to install fcp on systems that didn't meet the graphic specs. Also, not sure at what point you get this warning, but it might be because you're trying to install Color and/or Motion which have greater graphics requirements than fcp itself.

Wow, this is starting to look harrowing for a non-techy like me. I assume that when the Apple message talks about the need for a 'Quartz Extreme video card', they are referring to what I call the graphics card? If so, it seems weird that I replaced my original 2006 NVIDA graphics card with a new one because I was advised:
- The NVIDIA GeForce 7300 lacks certain features that are essential to modern graphics applications.
- The NVIDIA GeForce 7300 is quite slow. It's a shame that Apple shipped this card in first-generation Mac Pros. Those systems have really fast CPUs, even by today's standards, and they are dragged down by the slow graphics card.
Thus we recommend users in your situation to upgrade the graphics card in the system as soon as possible: The best card that will run on a 2006 Mac Pro is the ATI Radeon 5770:
So now I have done that, and having a modern card means I can't install Final Cut Studio? Crazy. Incidentally, the message comes us IMMEDIATELY.
Any thoughts? Please?

did you do some googling as I suggested? You'll get lots of hits. Here's one for finalcut server which may work
