Do you have a pcmcia card in?  If so, does removing it help?
Comment 2 Rogier van der Horst 2004-02-23 16:28:58 EST
No, there is no pcmcia card, however, the laptop does have an 
internal wifi card (orinoco type, at least it works with that driver) 
which uses pcmcia (it needs cardmgr), shutting it down does not solve 
the problem unfortunately.
Comment 3 Rogier van der Horst 2004-02-23 16:33:40 EST
the wifi card is onboard, so can not be removed
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2004-02-23 18:24:04 EST
Does booting with 'linux nopcmcia' work then?
Comment 5 Rogier van der Horst 2004-02-24 15:34:34 EST
Well, it works, as in, I tried it and was able to install fedora. 
However, after the first reboot, it immediately hangs when it tries 
to configure pcmcia. Trying to boot it without pcmcia doesn't help, 
because it then hangs trying to configure an unidentified device, 
which I guess is my wifi card. It says (right after enabling the swap

I have the same problem with a Dell Inspiron 4000 with 128mb.
Comment 7 Alan Cox 2004-05-03 14:57:34 EDT
Please report if acpi=off or later test kernels fixed this
Comment 8 Dave Jones 2005-04-16 00:13:30 EDT
Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat.  The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.

If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.

Thank you.
