What is the consequences of saying "linux nofb noacpi nousb" in the boot prompt?


Hi!

When I try to install Fedora 8, the system hangs at "running /sbin/loader". It seems that specifying "linux nofb noacpi nousb" in the boot prompt might fix it, but I'm wondering what those commands actually do and what effect they will have on my system?

Thanks!
