Help w/ Fedora Core v.2


I'm looking for help with a fresh install Fedora 2 on my PIII 700Mhz, 512MB RAM, 40Gb HD.

FDISK c:\ = 1024Mb | d:\ = 30 +GB

My idea was to use Linux tools like "anaconda" to create partitions for

/boot
/root
/usr/local
/home
/var

and whatever else.

Here's what happens when I toss the media into the CDROM and boot:

The Fedora 2 Intro screen appears. I choose "graphical installation". Next, the screen displays "Uncompressing Linux . . . Ok, booting the kenel.

And, that's it.

What do I do next? Anyone run into this before?

Any ideas/help to get me going would be APPRECIATED!

Thanks for helping this "wannabe" learn.

this sometimes happens when the temporary x server cant run.....this happens with some legacy machines. what u can do is to install rh9 and then later update x server, kernel and stuff for the best linux installation on ur box or choose text installation.......but again i am not sure that the x server will start even after installation.....so watchout......best thing is to install rh9 and update kernel, x and kde or gnome(which ever u like)...........takes a lot of time but a great learning experience ........
have fun!
