Could not find kernel image: linux

Hey,

I am installed Fedora Core 5 on and Acer TravelMate 290, FC4 installed successfully previousally (but is not on the system at the moment).

I have verified that the CDs I am buring have the correct SHA1 hash and I have burned several copies of the cd incase of an error.

When booting up it says

- To install or upgrad etc..

F1 etc..
Unknown keyword in config file.
boot:

The F1-F5 buttons dont work and I dont get any response, and when I press enter (or type linux text) I get the error
"Could not find kernel image: linux"

Also the image on the inital installation welcome screen appears malformed and only the bottom 10% of the image displays correctly but I have this problem with many linux distros

I have this problem for all of the CDs including the rescue CD

Thanks hope you can help

I'm having exactly this problem installing FC8 on my Fujitsu Amilo Pro V3205 core 2 duo laptop.
I've tried the /isolinux/vmlinuz initrd=/isolinux/initrd.img paramater but it can't find that inage either. Two different downloads, both checksums OK, both burnt at the lowest speed.
Anyone any bright ideas?
Thanks
David

Could not find kernel image: linux

I had the problem on my FC7 upgrade to FC8. I had upgraded my DVD writer while using FC7, and I didn't realize that the new writer automatically writes at the optimized level. When I redid my ISO DVD at the slowest speed (6x), then the new DVD worked fine.
