You need a /boot in a partition which is filesystem ext. On the other hand,
the installer seems to prevent you from doing this if you don't have a separate

But who knows what can be fixed??????
An LVM PV might be an issue as well, although I would expect the installer to
catch that as well. I'm not sure what you mean by "partition sda to sda1 ext3"
since ext3 is not a partition type but a f/s type. You want your files in ext4,
I would think, for performance. The default f/s format doesn't seem to set up
zones, there are a *lot* of options to ext4, I did mine by hand on one system
and feel as if it's worth it, but mainly because I run VM disk images there and
any speed boost seems to help.

I have installed Fedora-8-x64_86-DVD and had to comment out a modprobe line
I expect if I ever get past Error 15 I will also have to rename
My third linux install was a redhat ( I think less than 1) that I bought

This may be my 130th install of a linux.
