I encountered that when installing Fedora Core 4, and earlier, on one
PC.  In my case it seemed to be a BIOS issue, and the Zip drive being an
ATAPI device that confused the machine as to which was the drive it
should boot from to install the OS.  So I disconnected for the install,
reconnected afterwards, and things worked fine.

Test on one of your machines, to see what happens for you.

[tim localhost ~]$ uname -r
