Im trying to install Fedora Core 5 but it keeps stopping when it reaches 'Glibc'

Is there any option I can deselect to stop it installing glibc?

You cannot.

glibc is the most basic library in linux, so you cannot skip it's installation. If you are installing from cd, try to clean it or use another medium for installation

Please do not post a thread on the same topic more than once. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

In this case I have closed the original post because the dupe had more responses.
