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.

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.

Ok, understand.

But :
..."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.

get a linux emulator for windows, for eg. Cygwin is a good bet.

Hi agin

I downloaded again cd1, i checkd all 4 isos' md5, and they were right.
The, i begun installation, and two errors happend:

- at the end of second cd's installation, it says that some files couldn't be installed;
- when it asks me to inster cd 3, it says that it can't mount the cd.

I must say that, where he asks me to do media check, i thought that it checks md5, so i didn't do it;
now i'm worring because i think i havn't understand nothing

Hope u can help me
