Description of problem:
When trying to install Fedora 8 (i386 version) on my computer, I get passed the screen where it asks me to select whether I would like to do a graphical or text only install, the screen scrolls with lots of text, gets to a line which says 'Starting /sbin/loader', or something along those lines, and then it just sits there. The computer isn't frozen (I am able to type), but Anaconda does not load. I have tried both graphical and text-only install, and Kubuntu works on this laptop. The disc is fine (checked on another computer).

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert Fedora 8 Installation DVD
2. Select either of the installation options
3. Wait

Actual Results:
Anaconda does not start

Expected Results:
Anaconda should start.

Additional info:
The computer is an Asus G2S - T7500 2.2Ghz Core 2 Duo Centrino processor, nVidia 8600m GT graphics card, 2Gb Ram, and a 300GB Fujitsu MXH2300BT HDD. (Full specs at http://www.asus.com/products.aspx?modelmenu=2&model=1675&l1=5&l2=74&l3=463&l4=0)
