Description of problem:
Well, I have try to install FC4 on two identicals machines:
Motherboard Sis M863G (256Mb DDR RAM).
The first symptom is a white screen on the Fedora Core Logo place in bootloader (syslinux I think).

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. On this hardware
2. Just try to boot in Graph (linux) or Text mode (linux text)
3. The boot stop at RAMDISK error

Actual Results:  Kernel Panic

Expected Results:  Go to FC Installation

Additional info:

 to solve this problem I have to invoke a inexistent kernel at CD boot, then load a correct kernel. Example:

1. Load and Boot from FC4 CD.
2. at first prompt type: "nhaca" this genarate a error because have no "nhaca" image
3. after type: linux the boot start OK, whitout RAMDISK problem...
