Try installing the latest audio driver.
You can download the device drivers from ASUS WEB site.Select your model motherboard/computer/laptop, and make sure you select driversthat matches your Windows operating system. Please click on this link to theirWEB support site : -
Fedora supports hundreds of motherboards and the kernel is constantly being update so you should have no problem with the drivers for sound, and network. Just make sure on Fedora to download the latest installation package.
You need to create a space for which to install Linux. That likely means resizing Windows. Partition Magic is a good Windows utility to accomplish this, although there is a Linux version called Gaprtedthat will do essentially the same thing. You download the Gparted live cd, burn to disk, and run it from your computer. You must go into "setup" and set your Bios to boot from CDROM before booting the Hard Drive. Once booted, follow the on screen instructions. Resize Windows, (but NOT before a thorough defrag of your Windows drive), and create a "blank space" for Linux. Afterward, boot your Linux distro, (RedHat 9 was a great distro, but a newer version of a Red Hat based distro would serve you better, sayCentOS or Fedora Core), and follow the online instructions. Good Luck!
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.
From what i have been able to find on this board and fedora forums, the issue you are having is not a bootloader issue... Assuming all hardware is good and functional. it is likely that getting another video card and dissabling the onboard then reinstalling linux will fix u up :)
from what i have read it is an issue with x not being able to start and fedora sets the default runlevel to graphical so.... it appears to freeze but i bet you can hit ctrl+alt+F1/F2 to get to the various terminal screens if this is the case then you need to change graphics cards and even then it may not fix the issue. This issue seems to be a pervasive issue for all versions of fedora back at least to core 3 for this board for me this indicates hardware incompatibility (specifically the video controller)
I hope this helps... if not let me know
Without knowing more about your system, the key rule is to install XP first, then Fedora. If that doesn't work then it's time to put more partitions on your hard drive, and install the 2 operating systems on different partitions, again, remembering that Windows XP has to be the first installed.
