Question Fedora 7 x86_64 won't install on Dimension 8400


i'm trying to get fedora 7 x86_64 to install on a Dimension 8400 and am having some problems.

when i boot into the DVD, the install process works all the way to the installation portion (i.e. hit next to start install), and then hangs. i've tried both gui mode and text mode, and also verified the media.

any suggestions on how to get around this?

i'm using BIOS A09, the cpu is EM64 enabled, and all of the hardware seems to be detected correctly in the install script.
