fedora 4 installation problem
When using the 4 disc set for fedora 4 core, I can't install past the point where the screen displays "uncompressing linux..." At this point the cd-drive stops reading the disc and the installation stops. Is there a problem with my cd-drive or another piece of hardware? When I used another computer the disc was found to have no problems and installation went smoothly.

I had this same problem installing FC 5. It's symptomatic of a failing CD-rom, dirty lens on a CD-rom, or a bad CD. have you eliminated any of these possibilities?

I'll try to find a spare drive and see if that is the problem. It seems likely since the disc is in perfect shape and worked on another system.
