Exclamation Using hpet for high-res timesource


I posted this earlier but think I posted it in the wrong spot...Ok so im a total noob. But when i try to install fedora core 3, i press enter on the main screen to install using the GUI. on the next screen it jams ever time at line, "Using hpet for high-res timesource." Does anybody know what to do, or what this is?

See if the kernel options you select after the CD boot has acpi=no (or noacpi or similar). I don't know FC at all, but you should have something along those lines.

Seems you have a recent BIOS - AMD chip by any chance ???.

do you care to explain some more, and would you by chance know for a RAID card, particularly RocketRAID 2220, how to get linux drivers on a disk. The manual tells me to run rawrite.exe on a windows computer, and that rawrite.exe should be on the linux cd. well, ive dl'd 3 versions and had 1 version mailed as a dvd, and neither of them have a file /dosutils on them, which is where it tells me to look for it? so i dl'd rawrite for windows (googled rawrite), but i can only put it on a floppy thru that program, and the drivers are atleast 5.5 MB so they wont fit. any ideas?

As I said, I don't know Fedora, but I'd be *mighty* surprised if there wasn't an F2, F3 and/or F4 option at the initial prompt to give you the available options.
Likewise, last time I did a Redhat install (RH9), that directory existed. RAWRITE is used to write an .img file to the floppy, and you can boot that to do an install - or drivers presumably.
Others will have to help there.

I've just noticed you posted in (at least) two forum.
Better not do that again - it's against the rules, you'll get the moderators jumping on you, and the advice you get will be all over the place.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
