Description of problem:
Installed fdr4 fresh and after install the system will not boot and displays this:
Using drive 0, partition 0.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora Core 4
2. Reboot Machine
Actual Results: Using drive 0, partition 0.
Expected Results: OS should have loaded
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..
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.
