    Fedora Core 3 won't install


    Ugh...........

    Okay, I tried to install Fedora Core 3 with both graphic and text mode but for some reason whenever it gets to installing the packages it stops. It doesn't freeze it just shuts down my computer. The cd's are okay and worked before. Plus I also have 2 sets and both do the same thing. What's Wrong?

    Hi Rich,

    After the boot prompt, it runs through a short diagnostic, right? Does it shut down shortly after this point?

    If so, Im having the exact same problem... it may be the BIOS.

    It's not much, but look here: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=328144

    Ill be in touch wth my manufacturer today.
    Let us know how you make out.

    Fedora Packages/install

    What packages are you trying to install, plus are you doing desktop, workstation, or server, can you change the packages prior to, do a basic package install, this happened to me once, I rebooted and reset my partition selected less packages thru custom picks and it's working fine.

    Other than what I just said, not much more I can offer.
