sounds like the install cd is corrupt. where did you get it from?
instead of just pressing enter, try typing linux mediacheck then press enter.

hi kiran
instead to press <enter> type 'linux text' and then press enter it will start installation in text mode
if it also not works then your fedora core installation cd may be corrupted

The cd is corrupt.When you press enter at the first screen,the kernel is loaded.I think the kernel is corrupt.

I think you just have to hunt through and rm each bit.

rm -rf /usr/local/RealPlayer
rm /usr/bin/realplay

... will get most of it, minus the mozilla plugin under
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins, loc files under
/usr/share/locale/$LANGUAGE/LC_MESSAGES/{,}, and
realplayer icons under /usr/share/icons/hicolor/

Though, you can always try ./<binfilename>.bin --help
Just in case there's documentation.

Personally I installed from the rpm - this way I can use rpm -e to remove it.
