I tried to install Fedora 10.0 but I got a message CRC error, I change the HDD with another but the error still the same.

I read from the forum it cause of the kernel, but I don't understand about it.

Thankyou.

Welcome to LinuxQuestions!

Some time ago I struggled with the same problem on a production server, resulting in corrupted and unreadable files. I ended up to discover that a corrupted block of RAM was causing the problem. I replaced the offending block and the problem disappeared.

To test if this situation fits to yours:

1. if you have more than one RAM block, try to remove them one at a time and reboot the machine, to see if the error disappears.
2. run memtest86 or a similar software to test RAM functionality. Some Linux installation DVDs have the memtest included in the boot options, but I cannot remember now what distributions are they.
