I'm trying to install Fedora Core 4 which is the distrib in use in my university, but there-s a problem booting the innstall cd !! There is same problem with all ISOs i've downloaded and with 4 install CDs, rescue CD and also DVD of FC4.
Indeed, when i reboot my laptop, which is an Fujitsu Amilo M1425 with 1024MB of RAM, an Intel Pentium M 1,60 GHz and ati radeon mobility 9600, the boot prompt appear, and after i type "linux" or "linux noacpi noprobe noapic" or "linux ide=nodma" or anyother option to disable some features of kernel, I'va a lot of error messages such as follow :
Kernel panic : kernel not syncing : attempt to kill init !
<xxxxxxxxx> init_helper _xxx

And nothing appear... I've to halt my computer brutally with power off button... I've already search onto the web, but i don't find anything which help me to solve my problem.
So thanks for any assistance you can bring to me... :?
RE: cannot install fedora core
Just to help you out, I had the same problem installing on my fujitsu biblo pentium mmx, 64mb RAM and a silly 3GB HD (its kinda old) but it still serves me for linux. It gave me the same issues. I am a Mandriva user but I paly around with Redhat and Fedora Core. Well what I just did was to install in text mode. I just typed linux text and it just did it all. Hope it works for u and if it does mail me at amaluobinna@email@example.com
