Apologies if this should have been posted in the Installation Help forum
I am having a problem, i want to install Fedora Core 2 (i already have the install discs) on my laptop.
Now unfortunately I did not have any say in the model or make of the laptop so I am stuck with this Canadian only model by Toshiba.
The problem is the installer doesn’t recognize the keyboard at first, I essentially have to mash the keyboard a few times to get it to finally recognize the input I am giving. Then once the media has been checked, Anaconda fails to recognize the touch pad and relegates me to a textmode only install (or I guess I could use tab and enter to get through Anaconda but....)
I am willing to do a text mode install but would have preferred to let Anaconda do its "magic" .
So I am wondering if anybody else has had this problem, and or has successfully installed Core 2 on a Satellite A33.
I have tried Knoppix 3.3 and it works fine so i am wondering if this might even be a Xorg vs Xfree86 related problem.
Thanks for any and all help in advance

edit: I forgot to mention that i tried installing RH9 as well; to no avail.
I really want Linux on this Laptop, sick of XP.... and i was hoping to put Fedora on it because I am familliar with RH.
