Fedor install hangs after doin hardware chech and stuff

I have downloaded the fedroa core1 and wanted to install it . Right after it does some kind of hardware check it hangs up and does nothing. I tried grphical install and text install, but neither seems to work, it always hangs at the same point. The little blinking square stays on.

I have a 2200 Athlon XP, 512 DDR 2100, 9000 Pro ATI videocard, MSI mobo w/KT400 chipset. Could my hardware have anything to do with it?

I have installed Redhat 9 before with no problems, but uninstalled hoping there might be an easier linux distro out there.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks in Advance.

I was encountering a similar problem installing Fedora Core 1 on my DELL Latitude C600 laptop when it scans additional hardware during the first run right after installation.

I noticed that this only happens when I dual boot it with Windows XP. However, if I install Fedora by itself (without any other OS), it works like a charm.

I just decided to keep Fedora the only OS in my laptop. I think after a long time wishing to have Linux as my personal OS, Fedora has finally arrived.

I like it very much.
