Re: having problem while installing fedora
Sounds like Fedora has attempted to start up in GUI mode. However, your monitor/video doesn't support the resolution it's trying to use. Try this: Start up fedora in single user mode. See this link for instructions on how to do it. http://www.fedorafaq.org/basics/ It is option 4 on that site. Once you're in single user mode, you can edit the /etc/inittab file to go to runlevel 3, and reboot. this will start up the computer without a gui, and from there you can easily configure the video card and video settings for X windows.
Let me know if I can clarify anything.

1. Download an ISO image corresponding to your Computer's Processor Architecture (i.e. 32 bit or 64 bit)
2. Using an Image Burner application like ImgBurn, burn the ISO image to a blank CD or DVD (depending on whether you chose to download a CD Image or a DVD Image)
3. Restart your computer with the newly burned CD/DVD Image of Fedora
4. Now select it during the Boot Up process as the medium to boot from (i.e. press "F9 key for Boot Menu")
5. Fedora will boot automatically in 10 seconds. Launch the "Install to Hard Disk" application after Fedora boots; then follow its prompts.
For more information refer to this link for Official Documentation
WARNING: I will not be responsible for any data loss that occurs. It is recommended to backup your hard disk to external media before commencing any of these operations.
1. Download and burn the Fedora LiveCD. It is recommended that you use the latest version, Fedora 14, instead of 7, but you can use Version 7 anyways.
2. Boot up with the Fedora LiveCD. Select Install.
3. Follow the instructions displayed onscreen. When you reach the partitioning screen, you will need to resize your Windows partition. Resize it to a reasonable size (1024MB =1GB). Leave at least 5GB for Fedora to install.
4. After resizing, select the "Use Free Disk Space" option, and continue installing.
5. Your system will be installed with Fedora and the GRUB bootloader. The GRUB bootloader will allow you to boot into both Windows and Fedora.
I hope this post helps you. I appreciate your vote very much!
OK, FIRST, take off the fedora drive, and get that working first, Now, ADD the other drive, and configure that. You may have to pop your Windows,DVD in and do a Startup repair, after that then you can can select either one. Check this link out below it is a tutorial, of how to do what you want.
i think the cd from which you are installing might have got scratched so the cdrom couldnt read some files which are needed for installation ... so i suggest you to try changing cd.... there is no problem with installing in laptops we can install linux in any laptops...... i suggest you to install fedora core instead of redhat... fedora core has good functionality and it has inbuilt firewall security also for internet and it has got good options ... so try installing fedora core 5,6, or 7 .. if you dont have means you can download from net as linux is open source to all any1 can download from net ... there are many other linux available like ubuntu,suse, mandrake etc.... suse linux is also very good it is the very user friendly linux ... there other linux which can be run by cd only which doesnt need of installing it just like knoppix live cd etc.... be care ful while partitioning if you make mistake you will lose all datas ....
ya there is a problem with driver while installing fedora core 4 i think ... u must have also tried in that only ... so i suggest you to install other version of linux... there are many other versions available like ubuntu,mandrake,redhat. or you just give try with installing the latest version of fedora core ...( try fedora core 6 or 7).. as linux is a open source for all you can download it from net for free.............
