Need lots more info to debug this.
To begin, what kind of machine is this ? what kind of hardware is in the machine ?
What disk controller, what type of disks ? how many disks ? etc..

Comment 2 Robert 2005-08-30 01:21:31 UTC
IBM Netvista with western digital 40 gb hard drive. 3com ethernet card and ibm cd-rom.

when you went through the install and it asked you questions about the
bootloader, did you change or options, or go with the defaults ?

I used GRUB bootloader with password, that is the only changes.

as it sounds like you're not even getting to the grub boot screen, all I can
think of is that something bad happened at grub install time.  Is there another
OS on this disk ?  what does the partitioning scheme look like ?

When the installation gets to the end, instead of clicking finish (which would
make it reboot), can you ctrl-alt-f3 and see if there are any warnings/errors
there mentioning partitioning/grub ?

Jeremy/Peter, any other post-install diagnostics you can think of which could
figure this one out ?

2.6.14-1.1637_FC4 has been released as an update for FC4.
Please retest with this update, as a large amount of code has been changed in
this release, which may have fixed your problem.

Thank you.
