did you check the iso's with sha1sum if they are not corrupt or did the cd's pass the media check?

To Shams:

The CDs are already made that I cannot check the sha1sum. When I type "Linux mediacheck", it reboot again without doing mediacheck.

I had tried typing "Linux noprobe", it does not work, too.

You can try to install the FC4 in a gui mode.

Hi

That motherboard you list uses SATA (Serial ATA drives). Does Fedora 4 have native support for SATA hard drives? If not then you will need to install drivers for the hard drive first (Like you have to do when installing Windows XP with SATA drives). I'm not sure how this is done with Linux installs?

I had this problem with slackware, it would reboot as soon as it started loading vmlinuz, i figured maybe it's RAM since it rebooted when loading it into the RAM, so i swapped some sticks over and it worked.

maybe something to try if you have spare
