This looks like hardware or media problems with your CD drive, as indicated by
the following messages in your attached dump file.  Did you run the media check?
 Does this drive work for other things?

<4>hdc: command error: error=0x54 { AbortedCommand LastFailedSense=0x05 }

Media check fails unless you set ide=nodma. These disks install fine on other 
systems. Also this cd drive works great in Win XP and Red Hat 9 as well as 
Ubuntu. Could this be a problem with the drivers for the CD-ROM?
Comment 6 Chris Lumens 2007-03-12 15:43:38 EDT
Perhaps.  I'll reassign to the kernel component for them to investigate that

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen thus bug against that version.
