Description of problem:
Installing Fedora 1 core. Via CD-ROM takes >24 hours. Via Network
from http://download.fedora.redhat.com takes 2-3 hours. Seems
wrong. CD's read fine on other hardware, and other OS's install
rapidly on same hardware. Is this a bug in the CD-rom driver in
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Choose "install from cdrom"
3.Insert CDRom when asked
Actual Results: Install succeds, but takes >24 hours. CDrom reader
seems to spin up, then down, many times.
Expected Results: Install should have been realistic in time.
Hardware=DELL Workstation 400 MT, with scsi hard drive removed, but a
30 gig ATA drive in place. The rest is as from factory
