I have been trying for the pas 10 days to install Fedora on this laptop.
F15 would not allow me to access the internet or even allow Firefox to
run. Someone suggested on another Forum to wait for F16. I did...

Installed F16 x86-64 and ran into the following issues:

The system would freeze unexpectedly. I modified Selinux to Permissive
and relabeled the system, thinking it might be the problem...

I checked my network (I have a small home network and have been running
several Fedora desktops since FC1).and all other systems are running
fine. I can execute a "dig" and "nslookup" command without problems, but
if I try to run Firefox, or yum install, it will hang the system.

I have checked message logs (/var/log/messages and dmesg) without seeing
anything. I also get an error trying to ssh or scp from one of my other

The system has the following configuration:

Processor: AMD Dual-Core C-50 Accelerated Processor
Graphics Engine: AMD® Radeon™ HD 6250
Memory: 3GB DDR3 memory
Disk: 320GB HDD (5400rpm) 15.6" widescreen
Display Type: HD TruBrite® LED Backlit display
Resolution: 16:9 aspect ratio, 1366x768 (HD), Supports 720p content
Audio: Microphone jack (mono), Standard stereo speakers, Headphone jack
Wi-Fi® Wireless networking (802.11b/g/n)
10/100 Ethernet LAN 

Thanks in advance
