FC3 boot issue
FC3 did odd things for me also. You may need to hit <I> at boot to get interactive with it.
Near where the problem started in automatic, respond with a No to questions if you think that
is what the probem was. After you finally get booted, go into services and de-activate what ever it
is that causes the problem.
This may require some trial and error.
I tried FC3 on a P4 2.4ghz laptop and found FC3 slower than Slackware 2.6.9
Also tried FC3 on a dual 2.8ghz Xeon server and discovered no gain over Slackware 2.4.26.
