Trouble loading Fedora


Tried to load Fedora but when I press enter to load with graphics, my computer reboots and goes right back to the Fedora Code boot screen. I am trying to load it on an old Aptiva with a 333mhz amd k6 and a 6 gig hard drive. Is the hard drive too small to store Fedora? I used zBoot to partition the hard drive.

This really should be posted in the Fedora forum. Reported so it can be moved.

Your machine might not have enough RAM for the graphical install.

Try the text install instead - it's really just as easy as the graphics version.

Thanks for moving to the right thread. I have 160 mg of ram installed. I did try the text install also but my computer still reboots every time.
Any other ideas?

Is it possible the disc is damaged, or wasn't burned propperly?

I've seen a few occasions where the installer won't run when it finds existing partitions.

Remove the partitions and leave the disk space as "unused". Then try again. Let the installer create the partitions and the files systems as part of the install.

Still having trouble. System still reboots, text version, no partitions, ect. Might be a bad disk. Anyone know where I can down load a simpler bootable version of Linux with Mozilla and an array of drivers?
I think that Fedora may be just too big for a 6gig hard drive.
Thanks.
