/sbin/loader hangup

I have completely cleaned my PC, 2x Seagate hard drives, established WinXP and Mandrake 10.0 on them, however, I'm mystified that I couldn't setup Ubuntu or Fedora Core 3 on the system.

I get to the line "running /sbin/loader " and then the loadup would stop. Not hang, because the cursor was flashing as expected.

The loadup would not progress beyond the "running /sbin/loader" line.

Please help? I'd prefer to load Fedora Core 3, because it cost more than the others, and I haven't yet had a chance to discover what its capabilities are.

Many thanks,
