This also happens on my machine, with a P4 3.2G and an ATI-Radeon 
based graphics card.

The same DVD on a PIII with a Matrox G400 card boots fine

Comment 2 Dave Jones 2005-04-16 04:13:49 UTC
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.
