    Problem while installing Fedora 8


    K I burned the dvd of the i386 Fedora 8 from the Fedora Project website. I changed my cd drive to run before my hard drive.

    Then it put me to a screen where it said
    Install or upgrade an existing system
    Install or upgrade an existing system(text)
    Rescue installed system
    Boot form local drive
    Memory Test

    I chose the first and it started installing I think then it stopped after it introduced anaconda and its last thing was

    running instal...
    running /sbin/loader

    Is this just a matter of time I waited about 3 minutes and gave up, just want to make sure I chose the correct choice up above.

    Have you tried selecting Second option? It might be a Graphics Card problem and second option ( text based ) will sort it out.
    In case it doesn't work, post your machine's specs here.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
