I am a newbie to Linux and am trying to setup a LAMP to play around with a few things. I currently use a third-part web hosting service running a WIMP (it's as bad as it sounds) and want to get some experience setting up my own architecture.
I’m having trouble getting past the very first part, setting up Fedora 13 on my Dell PC, Intel Celeron 2.33GHz, 512MB RAM, 120GB HDD, onboard Intel video card. I downloaded and burned the Fedora 13 i386 DVD iso and i can get it to boot into the installer. When I perform the disk check, it says that my disk is damaged or the files maybe corrupted. I have checked the CHECKSUM file against the downloaded iso and it is exactly the same.
If I proceed with the installation, I can get all the way up until the point where it actually installs (after it wipes the partition). At that point it gives the following error: "The file ntsysv-1.3.45-1.fc13.i686.rpm cannot be opened because it is either missing or the file is corrupt". I get the same results when I try running the DVD on another Dell PC with P4, 512MB, Intel onboard video card.
I am following the instructions found here.
Any suggestions? I thought it might be the hardware so I swapped it out. I thought it might be the download so I got a file from a different mirror. I downloaded the 5-disc set to see if that would help. I even burned the DVD iso at 4x instead of 16x thinking it maybe "writing too fast" but I have no explanations for this.
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
