Description of problem:
When booting from the X86_64 DVD for Fedora 9 Preview, the install hangs at the ISOlinux line  just after POST.  The i686 version installed just fine.  I have tried burning 4 DVDs off of 2 iso images downloaded separately.  Both images check out with shasum.  I have included the list of stock components in the F572US laptop:

1.7 GHz AMD Athlon ™ 64 X2 Dual-Core TK-53
1GB DDR2 Memory
NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150 (UMA)
Super Multi 8X Dual Layer DVD±R/RW

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 9 Preview DVD

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Put the Fedora 9 Preview x86_64 install DVD into the DVD Drive
2.Boot the computer from the DVD

Actual Results:
The computer Hangs with the line ISOLinux Blah Blah Blah... Just after post.  The DVD Drive continues to spin for an indefinite amount of time.

Expected Results:
The installer should have started and allowed the install of Fedora 9 Preview.

I'm seeing this too on my home server. 
Comment 2 Peter Jones 2008-05-13 13:39:23 EDT
Any chance we can get a screenshot where it hung?  Also, can you try that
without "quiet" in the boot parameters?
Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 06:04:24 EDT
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.

Actually, it never gets to a point where one can modify kernel parameters.  It
hangs before grub appears.  Right after
