System hangs on "Enabling /etc/fstab swaps :"
 
I have successfully installed Fedore Core 6 from DVD. After rebotting it give error message regarding display option. "Cannot play on this Mode - 1440x900 60 Mhz".


After pressing Cntrl + Alt + F1 -- F2 . Instead of enabling DOS mode it shows all starting parameters & System just hands after

"Enabling /etc/fstab swaps :"

command line.


Kindly advice.

Hang at fstab
 
If it hangs at fstab it sounds like you have a problem with the install. Try again to install this same machine and pick all default options.

You do know that support for FC6 was dropped quite a while ago? The currently supported versions are Fedora 9 and 10.

It sounds like something in your swap file is not quite right in your fstab. Posting back your /etc/fstab would probably allow us to help you more easily.
