Related to bug 336161?
I have the same issue here on a AMD Duron machine with 1256 Mb RAM but when
the kernel is booting the first 5 characters after the word "Booting" are
replaced with ABCDE.
So, the whole message is: "Booting ABCDEUncompressing linux..."
220.127.116.11-26.fc8 boots as expected.
I have the same issue with 18.104.22.168-23 with 2 GB RAM and Athlon64
