I'm installing onto a Gateway MA3 notebook, a 40G hard drive (AMD processor, 1GB RAM)
when I install from the F8 or F9 DVDs, the installation freezes about a minute into "transferring install image to the hard drive" (during the first minute or so, the mouse works, then doesn't)
Again, this is the same for both Fedora 8 and Fedora 9 DVDs, when installing directly from the DVD.
Without resolving the above, i decided to circumvent it by installing from the hard drive.
I "cat"-ed the FC9 DVD image to my 29GB partition, to a file named "Fedora-9-i386-DVD.iso"
The installer seemed to find and use this file without a problem, and i went through the GUI install screens without a hitch:
"Checking dependencies ... " (about a minute)
"preparing transaction from installation source..." (progress bar finishes)
Then an error dialog with the following:
"There was an error running your transaction for the following reason(s): insufficient disk space."
You need more space on the following file systems:
3598 M on /
My "/" is the mount point for a 29GB partition, formatted in ext3, and containing at the moment only the 3.3GB iso file i produced (as stated above), which is in use
