Somehow get these files from the Fedora download server to a FAT32, ext2 or ext3 partition on your hard drive that will not be formatted during the installation...
Note: The first two CD ISOs will install a very basic system. The first three ISOs are enough for a system with Office and Productivity + Software Development package options. If you are installing many many more packages, you may need the other ISOs too.
To boot the kernel and get things going, you need to get to a grub prompt (it looks like this: grub>
). I don't remember anything about Fedora 1, but if it's like later versions...
Reboot your computer and at the Fedora splash screen, press a key to enter the menu. Press "c" for a grub> prompt command line. Or if I was wrong about that, use Fedora 1 to make a simple GRUB floppy and boot with it to a grub> prompt.
When you finally get to a grub> prompt, enter find /vmlinuz
You should see a result in this form: (hdx,y)
At the grub> prompt, enter root (hdx,y)
<--replace x & y with result from previous step
At the grub> prompt, enter kernel /vmlinuz
At the grub> prompt, enter initrd /initrd.img
At the grub> prompt, enter boot
Now you should enter a familiar "askmethod" installation. When prompted tell the installer where the installation files are located. It's (hdx,y) again. Good luck.
