Hi there ---
Thanks for your reply. I did try that approach and while the initial

Boot the installer using "linux dd". It will prompt you to insert a
driver disk at the appropriate point.
An example of the Fedora Core (>2) driver disk format can be found in a

Whilst driver disks don't work in FC2
(http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=122952), they're OK
in FC3 and FC4 (I know because I've made and used them).
