Re: Fedora 3 Install troubles



You probable are running into a version of this error
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=138419

It includes an update that you can install on a diskette, and when 
you run the install you use linux update (the database is down for 
maintance, so I can not check the exact command) or something 
like that instead of just enter. It will then prompt you to insert the 
diskette, and it will read the updated info that gets around the 
problem with the geometry of the drive. 

There are also some other solutions listed, so you might want to 
look at all the options.
