Re: Help with installation.



In addition to the other reply. I've recently installed FC3 on two K6 2 
300Mhz machine with 192MB ram and 256MB.  Tried to use a 3GB 
drive, but wasn't enough space for the workstartion install, so was 
able to get it with a 5GB drive. You might want to try switching the 
40GB drive as the master, if not a problem 

You might also what to look at the bug report, it has an update that 
deals with hard drive setups. It includes an update to the disk setup.
