RE: Trouble installing FC5



Kind of a chicken and egg thing.  I boot off of the floppy ok, type linux
askmethod so I can install from net, and it hangs in same spot, reading the
CD.

There are half-a-dozen ways of installing Fedora, as described eg in
<http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/fedora-install-guide-en/fc5/>.

Personally, I would install from hard disk if I had problems with the CDs
(assuming there is enough temporary space - about 3GB - on the hard disk).

In my experience, anaconda has always been quite bad
at dealing with different CD readers,
and it seems if anything to have got worse with FC-5.
