Dear Forum people

I want to install Fedora Core 6 in a server, well a little bit old server, I'm newbie in this kind of server matters but I'm sure that I can find very good pieces of advice from the people in the forum.

The server that I want to install FC6 is:

Processor: Pentium III Xeon 500 MHz 32 bits
Quantity: 4

I want to use this server in order to make some experiments, I really thank you in advance for all the pieces of advice.

Well, thanks for the replay. I want to use the server to develop a TPM (Transaction Processing Monitor), also I want to use it to work with a database (PostgreSQL) and install some virtual machines using Xen.

I think I didn't specify the problem, well I'm trying several times to install FC6 using the installation CDs, unfortunately it doesn't work.

When, the boot CD is identify, and the first screen appears, as soon as I tried to install, the procces didin't begin, it only appears the cursor in the left corner of the screen.

I download several times the CDs and check it in another PC but in the server that I want to install it doesn't advance more than the first screen, what could happend?

Thank for your answer

Regards

Arturo

hi,
do mediacheck first , by linux mediacheck.
if the media is found ok.Then,then try linux text, to install fedora in the text mode.
it seems that u got the boot screen but what about the welcome screen, the second stage installer.if it gets stuck before the welcome screen ,then probably it freezes when detecting some hardware.If it is in second stage , u can use alt+ctrl+f4 to see kernel messages.

For each guest in xen ,u need altleast 256mb ram to perform well.U mention it for doing experiments most probably like a test machine.so have fun.

regards,
Nirmal Tom.
