Description of problem:
Hello.. i need your help please..

I have some problems when trying to install FC2..

Here's the configuration of my PC:

ASUS P4P800 Motherboard
Intel p4 2400 HT processor
512 Kingston DDR 400
Gigabyte Ge-Force 3 Ti 200 Videocard
Creative Audigy soundcard
S-ATA Seagate 160gb HDD
Seagate 120gb HDD <- I install FC on this disk

First, i have a problem with my blacklisted motherboard, i pass 
through it by downloading boot image from arjanv's site.. everything 
goes ok, but after partitioning disk, selecting packages (i try all 
of presets: server, workstation, dekstop and custom) and entering 
root password i have message like: "you are trying to install on 
machine that doesn't supported by this release of Fedora Core." 
My friend trying to install this distrib on his Siemens-Fujitsu 
notebook and have same "error", another man install it (from this 
cd's) on many other PC's.. 

Maybe is there some way to pass through this error?.. Maybe smb have 
same problem?..
I hope on your help ..

P.S.: FC 1 installs succesfully, but when i trying upgrade it to FC2 
i have the same error..

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from .iso for p4p800 mb

3. manage partition and choose preset (ex. Workstation)
4. enters root password
5. having this error message

You're installing from a bad CD (the header list doesn't contain the
proper kernel information)
