Hi Hurry,
   I have connected with Tiansworld( tiansworld at gmail.com)
,he (or she) had made some test with fc12 harddisk install.
here is results:
1.with 128M or 214M memory, find install.img will failed.
2.with 256M ,find it succeed.

so ,we think hard disk install FC need more memory than the hardware
requirements limits.
can you add some advice to Fedora Core  ,maybe load install.img not in one time,
or add some advice in installguide document.
this question make me so cofused,hope others can avoid it.
