I tried a fresh install of FC4-test1-i386 a couple of days ago, and the install hung on "installing boot loader" for almost an hour. I reset the computer and it very slowwwwwly booted to the black-screen white-letters login screen. From there I couldn't get Xwindows to load. I could log in as root, but only as root, as the first-boot never loaded, and I never had the opportunity to name myself as a user.
Rather than wade through the multiple problems of that, I first made a mirror copy of my entire FC3 setup which resides on hd1 onto hd0. Then I tried another install, this time upgrading the /dev/hda installation of FC3 to FC4. This worked much better. The install was extremely slow, taking almost 4 hours to complete, but it completed.
Now, FC4 boots completely but won't configure eth0, and it says it can't find any mixer elements for sound.
One thing at a time; eth0; If I do a hardware search, it correctly sees my

If I do Main Menu > System Tools > Internet Configuration Wizard I set up eth0, but when I try to activate it, it returns an error that it can't find eth0.
Now, about sound; My sound card, as above, is correctly identified, but when I do Main Menu > Applications > Sound & Video > Volume Control it returns an error that no sound or mixing elements are installed. Yet, alsa is installed.
Any suggestions to either problem? Thanks in advance,
