We need LOTS more info, Peter. Computer make/model (or processor type
and motherboard make/model), video card, type of hard drive (SATA, SCSI,
IDE), memory size, that sort of thing. Also make sure the BIOS on the
machine is the current release (check with the computer or motherboard
maker's website).

The most common problems have to do with interrupt routing, DMA
channels, APMI issues and that sort of thing. There's lots of work-
arounds and we need to know what may be appropriate for you. If you
could tell us what's displayed when you hit "ALT-F3" and "ALT-F4" when
it's stalled, that may help as well.

Thanks for the reply Rick. Here's what I can tell you about my system:

Dell DM051 x86x86 Family 15* Model 4 Stepping 7 Intel 2793 MHz
Intel 82845G chipset
RAM 2 GBSATA drive
BIOS version Dell Inc A05, 3 /31/2006 (Phoenix ROM BIOS PLUS version* 1.10 A05)

channels, APMI issues and that sort of thing. *There's lots of work-
arounds and we need to know what may be appropriate for you. *If you
could tell us what's displayed when you hit "ALT-F3" and "ALT-F4" when

Nothing's displayed at all. I don't have a problem with either the F7 or FC6 boot DVDs! :(

If that happened to me, I would try the Fedora-8 KDE Live CD.
If that worked OK, it would mean that Fedora-8 will certainly run
on this machine, sooner or later ...

Great! This is exactly the problem. Hmm I'm glad that this issue has been pointed out before. I'll try the couple of suggestions mentioned from Bugzilla and also from the list. Thanks everybody.
Cheers,
