Fedora FC-5 i386 Install Problems.

I started installing Fedora FC-5 i386. Disk 1 and 2 installed without any problems. The installation said disk 3 had a corupt file and wouldn't continue even though it checked good at the begining of the install. I got another disk 3. When I try to start up the machine it says, "Missing Operating System". How do I pick up where I left off. I don't want to start all over at the begining with disk 1. I'm brand new to this so any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Unfortunatly, you need to start again from disc 1.

The missing OS message basically means that Fedora has overwritten your previous OS, but has not finished installing itself yet.
