Unhappy FC4 installing on VMWare 5

Hi All,

I'm trying to install Fedora Core 4 in VMWare 5. The installation process starts fine. But when it goes about 20% and trying to install syslinux-3.08-2 package it fails and ask me to restart because the setup can not continue. The Error message says "syslinuxinstallation is failed. This may be bacause of the media is bad or hardware problem." Can any body please help me to continue my installation. I tried to install FC4 using text mode as well. Even then I got the same message. But the ISO's I have worked fine when I install It on a actual machine. With VMWare 5 I ran FC3 sucssesfully.
