From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET 
CLR 1.1.4322)

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 
install process?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot diskette
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.

Additional info:

Hardware=DELL Workstation 400 MT, with scsi hard drive removed, but a 
30 gig ATA drive in place.  The rest is as from factory

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
