Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2004-04-13 04:08:39 UTC
Do you have a firewire controller on your machine?

Comment 2 Christoph Storzum 2004-04-13 08:42:08 UTC
No, I don't.

Comment 3 Christoph Storzum 2004-04-13 08:50:46 UTC
Another information, even though it should not influence the result: I
partitioned the harddrive (Maxtor DiamondMax Plus9, 120GB, ATA133) to
run MS Windows 2k server and Fedora on this machine.

I just downloaded Fedora Core 1 and will give it a try today and let
you know if it works on this machine.

Comment 4 Christoph Storzum 2004-04-13 10:43:38 UTC
Fedora Core 1 is running on my machine, the installation process was
finished without any difficulties, even though I run into trouble with
my network interface and ISDN-card (seems like IRQ routing conflicts).

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2004-04-13 14:58:17 UTC
If you boot with a serial console, do you get any kernel messages?

Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2005-09-23 21:02:49 UTC
