    Have you used the Fedora Core CDs before, or are they fresh downloads?
    I'm thinking bad download of CD 1,maybe?

    Just trying to eliminate one possibility. :)
    Are you installing over an older version without formatting or is this a fresh install? Is it a default install or advanced?

    after all nite session with FedoraCore 1 ....i get it to install fresh....seems that it did not like my 52x cd drive.....tried reinstall in 8x dvd drive and was able to install fine ...tries several different methods as well....and not a problem...so i guess my cdrw drive is not totally compatible with Fedora...strange worked perfectly for all prior versions of RH and Slack.. :confused: :confused:

    It is odd.
    Utanja, what is the make and model of the CD drive? I'd be interested to find out if this is a larger issue or just a model to avoid.
    Does Fedora have a errata page posted, I wonder? Perhaps they have somthing about this.
    Anyway, glad to hear you things working.
    And , please get your rest before you install an OS or fly a Lear jet. :D

    But rest before flying. There could be accidents post OS install.
