Description of problem:

I ran the anaconda install on a HP Pavilion 8575C.  My current OS is
Windows XP, and I'm trying to install Fedora on the formatted but
blank D (slave) drive.  When prompted I said "Everything" to all the
packages being offered.

When the installer asked me to include the GRUB boot thingie, I said
yes.  I also told the partitioning to be automatic because I've never
partitioned anything but an office cubicle before.  When DOS and
Fedora showed up as default boot options, I picked Fedora, and hoped
the boot loader would let me choose which one at startup.  Things went
OK until Disk 3, when I got the following message:  "NO KERNEL
CONFIGURATION WILL NOT BE CHANGED."  Sure enough, when the install
finished and I rebooted I was back in Windows once again.  What was I
doing wrong?  Thx -- chalquist@tearsofllorona.com

Did you run media check on the CDs?  Looks like something might have
been corrupted with the media.

Bad media is unlikely, since the kernel is on CD 1, and all went right
probably until after package installation.

I have seen no kernel being installed on i386 and i486, but this is a
Pentium III, right?

Closing due to inactivity.  If you continue to have this problem on a
newer release of Fedora Core, please reopen and add any additional
information to this report.
