Description of problem:
I've installed FC3 on an old 40 gb hard drive with no problems.  I
purchased a new Western Digital 160 gb drive today and when I try to
boot on the disk, I get the initial Fedora screen, then when it tries
to install, I get the following error:  mount-cache hash table
entries:512 (order:0,4096 bytes).  It hangs here, then will not go any
further.  It also makes reference to There is already a security
framework installed, thougth this is a new drive.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Every time on install

in the grub menu, press 'e' to edit the line, then add to the end of the kernel
command line.
Comment 6 Joe Ross 2004-11-27 08:36:16 EST
This error is occuring as I'm trying to install Fedora when the 1st
install disc starts loading just after the Fedora screen.  If I type
"e" at the Fedora screen it says kernel not loaded.  
Comment 7 Dave Jones 2004-11-27 22:49:32 EST
in which case, boot the fedora CD, when you the boot menu, type 'linux
Comment 8 Dave Jones 2005-07-15 13:45:26 EDT
