Graphics mode and Text mode.

In Graphics mode, I could proceed up to " Enter Password for the Root
Users" after that system hangs. It neither proceed forward bor backward.

In Text Mode I got the Following message:

Running anaconda - Fedora system Inastaller ........

Trace Back (Most recent Call last):
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 624 in <module> input users

File "/usr/lib/anaconda/users.py", line 22, in <module> import
libusers

InputError: /usr/lib/libuser.s0:1 Can not read file data: Input/Output
error

Insatll exited abnormally [1/1]

My system Configuration are follows:

P4, 2.80GHz,
80 GB SATA Drive, IDE ATA/ATAPI controller
17" Samung SyncMaster 943NW, TFT-LCD monitor

I inatalled my laptop using then same FC9 DVD.

Try running a "Media test" (the installer
should have that option ... shows up rather
early in the process.

Then you will know if either the disk is not
100% perfect or that your DVD drive is not
capable of reading that disc.

New drives are reading and burning better
than older ones.

If you burned the DVD (cd) yourself, try
burning a new one at a slow rate.

Good Luck !

Downloading a DVd is mostly a lot of data to download .
Prefer to download a CD it takes less time and the change that it wrong is less
Burn it if possible with speed recommended by the manufacture of the CD
Afterwards a course still do a media check

If it is a "not so perfect burn" ,
one drive will read it, another not.

This rather normal if you burn a cd or DVD you,re self
Use on the same device where you burn it.
If not it can give problems.
Burners in home use are not totally the same
Professional burner are totally the same
