Starting Fedora 2
 
Hi, im new on this forum and I'm a big :newbie: at Linux.

I just finished installing Fedora 2 and it wont start. After getting:
Code:

Enabling swap space                                    [ OK ]
Nothing happen. I waited 20min but nothing had change. If someone can help me it would be great. ;)

format the hard drive and reinstall, when you get to the parition creation part of the install, choose disk druid and make your own, make a /boot, a /, and a swap partition, the boot should be about 100mb, the swap I recomend to be the size of your RAM...so if you have 512mb RAM make the swap 512mb, and the / partition should be the rest of the hard drive (NOTE: there is an option to make the partition the rest of the hard drive)

Hit some key, like <ENTER>. Sometimes it happens to block and work again after pressing a key, especially ENTER.

how are u setting up your drive
i have mine set like this
useing a 30GB drive

1st partition = /boot @ 99MB
set to primary

2nd partition = /(root) @ 5GB
set to primary

3rd partition = /swap = @ 1GB (for my system)
same size as installed ram
set to primary

4th partition = /home the rest of the drive space
set to primary

if your drive is larger the u will have a bigger /home partition...
this way if /(root) needs replaceing all data on the /home partition is safe
also 5GB for root is more then anoth space even if installing everything
(which i do NOT recommend)

placeing the swap between /(root) & /home partitions seems to work as a buffer between the two partitions where the data is held.
also ensure ALL usb devices are disconnect when installing the OS u plug them in when u have installed the OS & removed the disc(s) and are about to reboot but before u do so
if u are useing a partition on a drive to install the OS DONOT set the above partitions to primary...

the easier and first step would be to just update the installation and then try the above solution. ya your partition has to be right intially.
