what controller do you have ?  (lspci will tell you)

If you don't have a Linux installed yet, try booting with 'noprobe' to get
you further into the install, and then flip to tty2, and lspci.

List weekend I also tried RedHat9 with the same results.  Are there
any guidlines to help me get Fedore Core2 installed on this machine?

Comment 4 Dave Jones 2005-04-16 05:59:58 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.
