Cant not install any packages in fedora-9
Hello frends i hav installed fedora-9 on my pc having intel dual core 512 RAM and intel 102ggc2 motherboard having on board ATI graphics.After installing fedora it says that Bios bug 8254!! timer no connected IO-APIC error and the mouse keyboard and monitor hangs up.I try another option by providing kernel option "nopaic" and fedora starts.
But now problem still remains is that i can not install any additional packages into fedora from root login it says u donot have sufficient privillages to install and says failed to install.

Please log in as "user" and try this for install :
1) command in a terminal : 'su'
2) and as root, command : 'yum install <package>'
**yum will then download and install the package.

It is not recommended to log in as root.

Good Luck !
