Hi there, first of all :-) i'm a new user, u must excuse me for my bad english. I hope to be clear.
I'm a new linux's user too, and my friends told me to instal FC2 to start.
I downloaded the 4 iso at fedora site, but, whene i'm installing, after chosing language and keyb language, the installation stops, and a message pops up sayng : Can't find fedora core 2 installation disc; i don't know what to do, hope you can help me
I quess you are booting from Fedora 2 Boot disc. After booting you should change the CD, which you have made from the FC2-i386-disc1.iso image. (This CD should be bootable, too, if done properly) Have you checked the CDs with "media check" ? Thay have to PASS the checking.
in fact i didn't boot from fc2 boot disc; i used disc1.iso, and it starts (also because i havn't at all the boot disk :-P); i tried to insert all 4 cds, bot nothing change; the only thing i found out is that the disc1 is bootable, nothing else :-(
the anaconda installer is probably unable to read the iso's u've downloaded.Make sure u didn't mess up your distro download.Check the install media using the md5sum utility that launches at the beginning of the install.If the disk doesnt check out correct,you've probably got a coaster.Check and post back.
..."After downloading the ISO images, check the MD5 checksums for the ISO images to ensure that your download was successful. Do this by running the md5sum program from a shell prompt against your ISO images and comparing the values returned against the ones published by Red Hat"...
To do this check i've to " run the md5sum program from a shell prompt ", but i'm a windows user, for now, and md5sum is not a command for windows prompt, did i say right?
It seems that your cd is probably corrupt,so the installer can't read data off it.By the way,where did you download it from.If from windows,then I should tell you that windows has problems with handling rockridge extensions and other issues.So make sure that your download was clean.
