Thumbs down Fedora Core 5 32 bit Edition will not install from CD DISK

Hi, brand new to LINUX and I purchased a 5 disk set of Fedora 5 to load up on a old pentium II Celeron so that I can learn the OS. However, When I put the first disk in the computer stops at "running/sbin/loader" and sits there forever. I have tried during off hardware detect and other options that are offered when the computer boots up but they all eventually get stuck at this running sbin. Please my computer to old? What are the minimum requirements? tks
