Fedora Core 2
While attempting to install Fedora Core 2 (I have already installed Core 1 without any problems) after inserting the first CD I get the screen " Loading ohci 1394 driver" after which it freezes and installation stops dead. The only alternative at that point is to reboot., and the same problem appears once more!
I don't know why. It happens to me all the time. It usually took me 4~5 times to get the OS install sucessfully. You can try other distro though, I have never had trouble installing debian or slackware (however I don't use them much).
the ohci is for firewire support?maybe a device attached to your system is incompatible so this makes trouble..
1394 = Firewire
ohci is also for USB support but the 1394 driver is a Texas Instrument firewire adapter.
Maybe you can try to remove/disable the device for now.
Maybe later you can update the kernel to a newer version.

it asppears that the problem was caused by my LCD display as no firewire devies are attached to the system. It finally installed without problems. Many thanks for your help
