you have to use the FC1 disc to boot, then replace the cd with the FC2 disc and do the install. For whatever reason, the FC2
discs just wont boot.

Prometheus,
When do you switch CDs? I have been trying to do it at different points but I get errors each time. It knows that I don't have the right CD. I have Fedora Core 1 cds that boot fine that I am using. Another question. Can I just upgrade my current installation? I would like to start fresh but if it is easiear to upgrade I could do that too. Thanks.

I was able to switch CD's right after the FC1 CD booted to the first boot options screen, but before the kernel actually started.

From this point FC2 appears to boot properly and I was able to get to the installer to begin the installation (finally!).

This is correct. Insert disk 1 test 1, and let it boot. Before hitting enter or anything else, remove the cd and replace it with disk 1 test 2. Then I hit enter to install as I normally would.

BTW, the Bugzilla entry for this issue is
http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=119386

There are a number of other workarounds available as well. One known to work is to burn boot.iso and boot into the installation with it.

Another is to rebuild the CD1 iso which is also reported to work.

See:
http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-test-list/2004-April/msg01064.html

http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-test-list/2004-February/msg00445.html

These are all good alternatives to the swap CD method.

The really weird thing is, I haven't had this problem with either FC2T2 or Mandrake 10. Does it only seem to affect certain types of machines? I've used both on a Dell OptiPlex GX100 (Celeron 500) and both have booted and installed fine.
