same machine again, it just could not find the CDROM ! Now I believe
that versions before FC6 ( In Fedora family) may have proble with Core 2
DUO motherboards, and in MS windows anything before XP ( even in XP may
have some application problems - but I can prove) may have compatibility
problem as well. Seems now only FC6 and Vista can install into this
machine without problem, I am going to download the entire set of FC6 to
try this machine out and might post my new findings.
I don't think it has anything to do with the motherboard or core duo. I
had the same problem with one of my boxes, an ASUS mb with P4. I
eventually got around it by removing the IDE cdrom and using a SCSI
I had the same problem with an IBM THinkpad T40. I got around that by
using a PXE boot and a tftp server on the Asus box.
The problem is somewhere in kudzu or anaconda. probably the latter and
probably has something to do with the re-mapping of the hardware during
the transfer from the initial ram based boot image to the 'real'
hardware based image.
