Angry Fedora Core 3 Boot Failure

I just installed Fedora Core 3 over my Slackware install (after formating all the partitions) and now when I attempt to boot it seems to go fine and then after reporting that the HAL daemon loaded fine the screen flickers a bit as if its changing resolutions and then theres a bunch of garbage and the whole system locks up. can anybody help please.

FC3 boot issue

FC3 did odd things for me also. You may need to hit <I> at boot to get interactive with it.

Near where the problem started in automatic, respond with a No to questions if you think that
is what the probem was. After you finally get booted, go into services and de-activate what ever it
is that causes the problem.

This may require some trial and error.

I tried FC3 on a P4 2.4ghz laptop and found FC3 slower than Slackware 2.6.9

Also tried FC3 on a dual 2.8ghz Xeon server and discovered no gain over Slackware 2.4.26.

Good Luck
