I am (attempting at least) installing FC4 64Bit in a USB Hard Drive connected to A Compaq R4000 Laptop. If I install with the USB hard drive connected the Install hangs during the hardware probe. If I disable the probe with the "linux noprobe" option it hangs on the Media test screen as if the keyboard was disabled. If I disconnect the USB hard drive from the machine then the install is able to continue and I can check the Media and that passes.
The computer has a AMD Athlon 64 3200+ processor and 1 gig of ram
The USB hard drive consist of a maxtor 200 gig hard drive in an adaptec acs-200 enclosure
Thanks for any help.
