Fedora Core 4 on Acer travel mate 3000

I am trying to install fedora core 4 on Acer travel mate 3002 wtci (Acer travel mate 3000 series)I can boot from the it's external Combo drive(USB).But having some issues.
When the booting with the DVD Disk and going through the Pre installation phase it askes for the Source of the installation files.Eg. FTP/HTTP/NFS/HARDDISK/CDROM .I chosed CDROM.Now it says no drivers found in the disk for that .so it says to insert the Image driver for it.I beleive that the driver is not in the Initial RAMDISK.(Startup Device Drivers)Now where the hell do i find that driver.It's been a long time i am trying to install this.But never suceeded
Please Advice.
Thanx In ADV.

AFAIK: FC4 install image dosn't include the usb drivers.
You will need to use the same procedure as installing to a usb hdd. There are many discussions on how to do this on these forums. (Or use an internal dvd drive ... if you do not own one, beg borrow or steal one.)

Or try FC5
