Hi, I am brand new to Linux and this is my first post to this forum. I have been with Windows for years and thought it's time to dip into the Linux world (sorry Bill - please dont revoke my MCSE!) anyway, I had a look around and thought Fedora Core 6 looked like a good place to start my journey of Linux discovery.
I have a Shuttle SN25P, specs are;
AMD Athlon64 X2 4200
NVIDIA nForce4 MCP
HDD0 - 300GB HDD - Windows Vista Ultimate
HDD1 - 200GB HDD - Blank, this is where I want Fedora
NVIDIA 7800GT 256MB PCIe
NEC X16 DVDRW
Samsung 20.1" Widescreen TFT Head1
Sony 17" TFT Head2
I am trying to install Fedora Core 6 - 64bit
My problem is that I start going through the install fine; until it gets to the software selection, I take the defaults and it comes up "checking dependencies in packages selected for installation" and gets about 99% through the progress bar and then just sits there. Tried it about 10 times now and gets to the same point every time. I have checked all the media and it states it is fine, I have downloaded the ISO's again and made another set of discs.
And as I am writing this I am trying the install again; this time I have got a new error message when about 15% through the progress bar stating "an error occurred unmounting the CD. Please make sure you're not accessing /mnt/source from the shell on tty2 and then click OK to retry" Clicking OK just brings that error up again.
Any help you can give me would be greatly appeciated
