When trying to install Fedora 3 (I think-there is no label on it other than Fedora 3-
the CD is for i386) when it gets to line <running /sbin/loader>
it STOPS and can't be made (by me) to go any farther.
The attempt to load is on a never-before used hard-drive
with processor "ACPI\GENUINEINTEL_-_X86_FAMILY_15_MODEL_3\_0".
Could the problem be that the processor is beyond the CD in technology?
Thanks for the response.

As far as i386 vs x86- you should be fine with the i386 disks. A link that explain this better than I can. http://www.linuxforu...&highlight=i686

Usually, i386 is the same thing as x86. In fedora's case, this is true. I suggest getting Fedora Core 4, which came out the day I am writing this. in fact, im downloading it right now. From the sound of your problem, the disk is probobly bad. Check the md5 checksums if you can.
