Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:07 EST
Description of problem:
Every time i boot the laptop, it will do this. I've tested every key on the
keyboard. If they are legal ascii keys, they will reboot the laptop.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put DVD into drive
2. Turn on laptop
Anaconda/setup fails to load, and the system locks up.
Installation menu and setup procedures.
The laptop has a ESS Maestro 3 soundcard, and a ATi M3 videochip inside it. I
belive its a videochip issue, because FC3 works just fine. For more information
on the internals of the laptop, this page is the best i can find on it:
This is a bug in syslinux 3.07 which was resolved in 3.08 which is to be
included in FC4 final
