Fedora Core 1 freezes when starting Anaconda

when i go to boot the fedora core 1 cd onto my machine, after it goes and checkes the cd media and than you want to procced to install fedora, the install just freezes and does not boot into anaconda installer. The weird thing is, if i were to install the fedora core 2 test 1 cd everything will go ok. Does anyone know of any way for me to get the core 1 cd to boot into the gui installer so i can install it? It would be much apprectiated. By the way my system is an emachine (got it for free as a test machine) running an celeron 1.8 gig chip, with 512 megs of ram and a 30 gig drive.

No luck, after i hit skip media check, it still will not load the anaconda installer. For some reason it will load it up for core 2 test 1. but i do not want to install cor 2 test 1 as it has its bugs.
