  1. Fedora 7 Installation fails at end of Formatting/file system amd all i get to see is one BIG X on the screen, I have checked the disk integrety through its own installation.
    Any help would be great

    The error i recieved is actually happens when it is copying the files to the hard drive, it says this file is corrupt of missing pciutils-2.2.4-3.fc7.i836.rpm and asks for a reboot. I used the built in disk check before the install and it says no problems. I also ran the SHA1 checksum and there was no problems there.

    Test the hard drive and the RAM too.

    It was just a faulty DVD drive, I have fedora 7 successfully installed, just two problems remain, I need to access the internet using my netgear wireless card model WG311 v3 and the second problem is can i access my second hard drive that i stored my files on through linux, i believe it NTFS file system.
