Hi,
I tried to install Fedora 3 on my PC which already has Window on one partition. I Installed Fedora on the other partition. Installation ran successfully. But when I tred to boot the very first time, the process stopped on the "configure kernel parameter" statement.

Is any one can help me to solve this problm? Is there any default value I can use to pass the configure kernel parameter problem, so I can starting to learn Linux.

I will be appreciated anybody's kindly help.

Thanks.

There's no one "kernel parameter" so I can't really tell you how to configure it. Do you see any error messages before the boot stops?
Your best bet is to search the fedora mailing list and see if anyone else has a similar problem.
Another alternative would be to try a different Linux distribution. I recommend Knoppix to new users because there's no setup. It's a bootable CD. If it works, then the problem's with your Fedora install. If it runs into a similar problem (keep in mind all Linux kernels originate from the same place) the problem may be with your hardware. I've seen bad RAM hang up boots before.

Joe,
Thank you for your suggestion. I reinstall Frdora core 1 and I have no problem with it. So the problem should be the DVD. I am very happy starting to learn Linux now.
Thanks again.

Abe
