Installing Fedora Core 5 on a DFI Lanparty NFII Ultra B Mainboard


Whoa, who would'a thought that I'd have the same problem on two different computers?

Dear Mods, that thread is for that problem. Not this one. They are separate.

Anyway, I can boot off the Fedora Core 5 DVD, or a Fedora Core 5 CD, or even use the Diskett version to boot... As soon as the installer starts, it just stops. Right before it shows the screen saying this. I get the cursor on the screen, but nothing else loads.

So recap, I get no error message, the installer just hangs, but the mouse cursor still moves. The medium is okay, as I've installed it on other computers with no problems.

Here's the hardware:
---
AMD Athlon XP 3200+
DFI NFII Ultra B Mainboard
WinFast A400 (GeForce 6800 Ultra (450/1150))
Corsair CMX1024-3200C2 2048MB (CAS 2-3-3-6)
Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS
3x SATA Barracuda 7200.2 RAID (450GB)
---

Things I've tried:
linux selinux=0
linux selinux=0 reiser
linux vesa
linux selinux=0
Booting off floppies.

May I please get help?

As far as I know, fedora shows console output on console 3 or 2. Try switching over during boot and see if it says something that might help.

It does say stuff...

It does allow me a SH prompt. And shows some information. I know not what to do with all that stuff. Heck, I don't even know how to copy and paste it to these forums...
