Fedora Core 3 install problem


i want to install FC3 on my old Toshiba Tecra8000 laptop which is currently running FC2. But i can not get the autorun to work. When i try to run it from within FC2 nothing happens, and i can not get into the BIOS to change boot sequence because grub takes over ...

How do i get the installer to run ? Thanks,

I am a newbie not sure if Iam right and this is the answer you are looking for but as I know on Toshiba, not sure about your model but on my Satellite 2410-603 you can access BIOS when initial Toshiba screen comes by Holding Esc and then pressing F1.
And all this happening before GRUB loads, so dunnot really see the problem.
Plus try to hold C while booting
