Hi had the same problem and wasted 100 cd's. I purchased the cd's online -- there's 100 different places to buy them -- just google. Most ship same day, no more headaches with Nero or other software. I've been up and running for over 6 mos. now. In Fedora, you will be able to burn cd's/dvd's with software called K3B. No more burning worries. Good Luck!

Hi! Can hard disk installation be used with DVD iso?
With CDs images it works fine, but should it work with DVD image too?

This is for the guy that had difficulty getting his CD's to boot.

Did you set your BIOS to boot from CD first?

And for everyone else with failures during install, reboot and try again, sometimes these errors disappear after a couple of go's.

Help Multiple/Network/Session Install

Is there a way such that I can have a saved config into a floppy of the installation process so that if I will be installing in mupltiple PCs i have the same set/setup of packages installed as well as the settings?

or better to have it in a network install?

nacchrist ,when you see the configure screen ,check the configure advance option , then you have the chance to escape install grub or do other things.

Install Issues

I have been trying to install from CD. I download the file FC4-i386-disc1.iso and burn it to a disc. After it goes thru a boot it says "Fedora Core" not found? I have made a few coasters now and don't understand what file I need? Any help on a solution to get the ISO's needed and a way to check the file before I hooch another disc?

Tanks.

Possible error is you only burn as iso file instead of using burn image.

Code:
Boot time command args:
-----------------------
 
expert          Turns on special features:
                    - allows partitioning of removable media
                    - prompts for driver disk
 
noshell         Do not put a shell on tty2 during install.
 
lowres          Force GUI installer to run at 640x480.
 
resolution=<mode> Run installer in mode specified, '1024x768' for example.
 
nousb           Do not load USB support (helps if install hangs
                early sometimes).
 
nofb            Do not load the VGA16 framebuffer required for doing
                text-mode installation in some languages
 
nofirewire      Do not load support for firewire devices
 
askmethod       Do not automatically use the CD-ROM as the install
                source if we detect a Red Hat Linux CD in your CD-ROM drive.
 
nousbstorage    Do not load usbstorage module in loader.  May help with
                device ordering on SCSI systems.
 
noparport       Do not attempt to load support for parallel ports
 
noprobe         Do not attempt to detect hw, prompts user instead.

                to the machine using a vnc client application.
 
vncpassword=<password>  Enable a password for the vnc connection. This will
                prevent someone from inadvertantly connecting to the
                vnc-based installation.
 
                Requires 'vnc' option to be specified as well.
 
vncconnect=<host>[:<port>]   Once installation is up and running, connect to
                the vnc client named <host>, and optionally use port <port>.
 
                Requires 'vnc' option to be specified as well.
 
updates         Prompt for floppy containing updates (bug fixes).
 
isa             Prompt user for ISA devices configuration.
 
dd              Use a driver disk.
 
driverdisk      Same as 'dd'.
 
mediacheck      Activates loader code to give user option of testing integrity
                of install source (if an ISO-based method).
 
rescue          Run rescue environment.
 
nomount         Don't automatically mount any installed Linux partitions
                in rescue mode.
 
nopass          Don't pass keyboard/mouse info to stage 2 installer, good for
                testing keyboard and mouse config screens in stage2 installer
                during network installs.
 
 
serial          Turns on serial console support.
 
ksdevice        Takes an argument like 'eth0', tells install what network
                device to use for kickstart from network.
 
ks              Kickstart over NFS.
 
ks=cdrom:       Kickstart from CDROM
 
ks=nfs:<path>   Kickstart from NFS.
 
ks=<url>        Kickstart via HTTP.
 
ks=hd:<dev>     Kickstart via harddrive (dev = 'hda1', for example)
 
ks=file:<path>  Kickstart from a file (path = 'fd0/ks.cfg')
 
ks=ftp://<path> Kickstart from FTP.
 
ks=http://<path> Kickstart from HTTP.
 
kssendmac       Adds HTTP headers to ks=http:// request that can be helpful
                for provisioning systems.  Includes MAC address of all nics in
                a CGI environment variable of the form
                HTTP_X_RHN_PROVISIONING_0, HTTP_X_RHN_PROVISIONING_1, etc, for
                all nics.
 
dhcpclass=<class> Sends a custom DHCP vendor class identifier. ISC's dhcpcd can
                inspect this value using "option vendor-class-identifier".
 
upgradeany      Don't require an /etc/redhat-release that matches the
                expected syntax to upgrade.
 
lang=<lang>     Language to use for the installation.  This should be a
                language which is valid to be used with the 'lang' kickstart
                command.
 
keymap=<keymap> Keyboard layout to use.  Valid values are those which can be
                used for the 'keyboard' kickstart command.
 
ip=<ip>         IP to use for a network installation, use 'dhcp' for DHCP.
 
netmask=<nm>    Netmask to use for a network installation.
 
gateway=<gw>    Gateway to use for a network installation.
 
dns=<dns>       Comma separated list of nameservers to use for a network
                installation.
 
method=nfs:<path> Use <path> for an NFS installation.
 
method=http://<path> Use <path> for an HTTP installation
 
method=ftp://<path> Use <path> for an FTP installation
 
method=hd://<dev>/<path> Use <path> on <dev> for a hard drive installation
 
method=cdrom    Do a CDROM based installation.
 
vnc             Do graphical installation via VNC.  Instead of
                starting a normal X server, vncserver will be started
                and you can then connect remotely to do the
                installation.
 
vncpassword=<password>  Set a password for the vnc session.
 
vncconnect=<host>[:<port>]   Once installation is up and running, connect to
                the vnc client named <host>, and optionally, on port <port>.
                 Requires 'vnc' option to be specified as well.
Below is a list of undocumented commands that I found contained in the anaconda source:
Code:
test
