No Matt, no error message. further, after more investigation it appears
that GRUB is actually running, and if I could understand the very

No, LILO is not an alternative in the installation choices.

Thank you Alexander,
I will try again after work this evening. I have acquired a copy of
MandrakeLive CD, so I can first load Fedora Core 3, then run
MandrakeLive from CD to investigate.
