How much RAM do you have? what amount of packages did you select? Will
it work using "minimum install"?

I've tried installing FC5 about a dozen times over the past couple of days,
but to no avail. I'm using the FC5 x86_64 DVD and installing on an nforce4
AMD 64 X2 3800 processor architechture.
On the GUI install page reading "Fedora core 5 is ready for installation.
Click OK to continue", I click OK. The big screen-wide progress bar appears
but the system simply hangs. I know from experience that the next thing that
is supposed to happen is the / filesystem is formatted, but the little window
never comes up. The DVD simply spins down and the system hangs forever.
p.s. I'm using 4 SATA drives, but I have tried disconnecting all but one and
still get the same problem. I have tried my DVD drive in both the secondary
and primary IDE channels.
