The 2.6 kernels of Knoppix 3.4 and 3.6 and Ubuntu live-cd with a
2.6.8 kernel works.
"Tsorvoja" posting at fedoraforum.org has had the same problem with
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

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.
