Question Fedora core 6 not running after installation


I have installed a Fedora Core 6 on a 64 bit AMD 3200+ machine having 1 GB of RAM.
While installing I have made all the /, /Boot, Swap and /Home - partitions to be of the ext3 type.
My CDs passed the media checkes and there were no issues during installation.
But after installation, the fedora starts - first there is the boot loader, and nect there is a black DOS type screen...where it shows fedora is starting
but after that everything goes black...the monitor keeps on blinking....and that is the end
Please help me

You may have a monitor/video card problem:

Run a rescue disk or enter 'linux single' at the boot prompt. Then edit your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file with nano or another editor:

nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf

check that your monitor specs (horizontal and vertical frequency) and video card type are entered correctly.

Then reboot.

I don't think you are entirely correct on this one. ext3 works fine as /boot so I don't see the need for it to be replaced with ext2.

I see. I always create /boot using ext3 on my centos machines and never had problems. Anyway hardware configurations differ a lot, so I guess its different problems for different folks.

Thanks...but I have the problem solved...it had nothing to do with the file format...the graphics card was not recognised earlier.
Cud U please tell me how I cen see the FAT32 or NTFS disc drives that I use in the Windows XP OS in Fedora as well?

For ntfs support, get the Fedora rpms from linux-ntfs.org.

It depends if he/she wants to write to ntfs. If you do you need to set up ntfs-fuse

Steps:
1. copy client exe to /root folder
2. Be super or Root user
3. do chmod 755 /root/24onlineClient
4. at #prompt type : 24onlineClient -s
1. It will ask you for AskonExit: type y
2. it will ask for AutoLogin: type n
3. it will ask for ShowNotification: type y
4. It will ask for server ip address: type 172.16.0.1 or whatever is 24online server ip address.
5. Then run at # prompt this line : /root/24onlineClient -u username (username means whatever username you have created in 24online GUI) like manager, administrator ..etc
6. It will ask for password. (password is case sensitive) make sure about casename.
7. and Last type Enter. it will login.
8. You can check instance of 24online Client running by command at #ps -ef
9. You can Logout by typing command as #/root/24onlineClient -l
I cannot follow these steps
I am stuck at the first step
how does one do chmod 755 /root/24onlineClient
