Description of problem:
When i try to install Fedora Core 1 on a DELL Optiflex GX 260, after 
the disc test or skipping, the installation stops with an error 
message from anaconda saying "Bad AdreessInstall".

I've tryed severeal ISOs burned in different CD recorders, the MD5 
checksum are ok and if i test the discs before the error, anaconda 
says they are ok.
But alaways the same problem.

My CD-RW is ok, since i can install other things.

Warm regards,
Mário Gamito

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Just put CD 1 on the tray and boot the machine.

Actual Results:  I had to install another distro :-(

Expected Results:  It should install ok, since i've got it insrtalled 
in my laptop.

ok, i've installed SuSE 9.0 in the DELL itself and then burned the 
first Fedoera Core 1 ISO, just to make sure that there was nothing 
specifical with th CD-RW.

No good, the problem remains :-(

Warm Regards,

Does booting with 'linux allowcddma' help?

Dear sir,

Yes, indeed it solved the problem.
I'm writing to you right now in my DELL's Fedora :-)

Thank you very much.

Warm regards,
