I have NO idea what this says....

I appreciate the difficulty of dealing with English as a second language, but you will need to help us understand better what is happening.

When you installed FC4, were there any errors during the process? When booting, what steps doe it go through before you get to the errors?
Can you boot up in Knoppix and read what is on the disk? If so, please post the output of "fdisk -l" (ell)

Did you check to see if the installation media is corrupted?

Best bet would to re-download the dvd-image or the iso images and re-burn them.

best of luck!!
