I have problems installing Fedora Linux on my machine. The CD's are ok since i tried to install Fedora on a virtual machine and I've tested the CD's.
When I boot from the CD I get this kind of screen.
- To install or upgrade in graphical mode, press the <ENTER> key.
- To install or upgrade in text mode, type: linux text <ENTER>.
- Use the function keys listed below for more information.
[F1-Main] [ F2-Options] [F3-General] [F4-Kernel] [F5-rescue]
Then, no matter if I choose text install or graphical install, it displays some text very quickly and then it locks down and the last lines it shows are
ide1 at 0xe400-0xe407, 0xe002 on irq 10
ide: late registration of driver.

After it displays the last line the cursor no longer blinks and even if I leave the pc alone for 30 min it doesn't to any progress.
I'm thinking it might be a hardware issue.
My pc configuration is
P4 2.8 Ghz
256 MB NVIDIA FX 5600
1GB DDR 400mhz
2 SATA HDD's
An MSI Neo 2 Motherboard.
Thank you for your time.
