Description of problem:

Thanks to get into this message, it's maybee nothing...
Our team have made some installation of Fedora Core 1 on desktop and
laptop, all is great, but if the drive was not empty before this
install, we have a big problem, on all computer, and it's not depend
of the pc's contructors. The only solution that we've found is to
install Suse Linux 8.2 (minimal), just to create partition, and after
run again the Fedora Core installation, and that way get all perfect.

Trouble with partition creation under Fedora, or management of the mbr?
Actual results:
Fedora Core 1 doesn't start. Often, this is Xserver that won't start.

Expected results:
Fedora Core 1 installed correctly, without trouble.
