Description David G. Mackay 2004-02-13 11:28:32 EST
Description of problem:
When I try and boot from the installation CD, I see the loading
vmlinuz and loading initrd messages, then the system reboots.  It is
an old AMD-K6 system that I use for a testbed.  I can boot a Sony Vaio
laptop from the same CD, and I verified the CD against the iso image.  

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot from installation CD

Actual Results:  Reboots before I actually see any messages from the
kernel boot process

Expected Results:  Boot and run anaconda

Additional info:

I also tried a "linux text" boot with the same results.

As mentioned in the release notes, test1 won't boot on anything less
than a 686. This has already been fixed for future releases.
