Easiest Way to install FC5/FC6 on Crusoe Systems
Fedora Core 5 also has this problem, though the work-around on this thread didn't work for me. However, I did find something that did work (from RedHat/Bugzilla support) after logging a case with the Fedora project. I assume that this will also work with Fedora Core 6, but I have not tried loading FC6 as yet:
At the boot prompt for the install CD/DVD, just enter the following, instead of hitting 'enter' on a blank line:
This will force the installer to use i586 packages instead of assuming i686 is correct.
This works great for installing Fedora Core 5 onto an "old" Fujitsu P2120D laptop.
