I don't see anything that can go wrong here. Do you have a graphics card? Does it throw an error of 'Frequency out of range' or such?
Do some other distros work?

the problem i read so far is that FC6 was released in a hurry while mandriva has done it perfectly. especially the device driver settings and the desktop effects and also the i586/i686 issue is totally void in mandriva. so some systems might have problems with the iso of FC6. though , i dint face this problem. try to some how get the updates of fedora and install it either after the actual installation or somehow infuse it with the old iso, if possible or get an updated iso. that should also fix u tons of problems which i solved one by one off late! :(

Which vertual terminal? Try ctrl + alt + F2 or F3 or even F4. I don't know about FC properly. I guess one should be free.

problem wid physical connection of the hdd?? or mebbe some error during installation??? looks like that.... try to load linux in console mode, instead of gui while booting from the boot loader.

intel D845GVSR
should FC6 work flawlessly on my computer???

config is fine enough to run fc6. but dunno if u can enable compiz wid the default drivers on 845. some 845 user will be able to help u wid compiz. otherwise if fine enough.

Just another linux lover.
Try this...

1)Boot from a live cd (Ubuntu 6.10, knoppix etc.)
2)Mount your Fedora Installation partition.
3)Open the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf (Fedora)
4)Now search for this section...
Section "Device"
Identifier "Intel Corporation 82810E DC-133 CGC [Chipset Graphics Controller]"
Driver "i810"
....................
....................
EndSection
5)Change "i810" (different in your case) to "vesa"
6)Reboot

It seems like a problem with the hard drive. As infra_red_dude pointed out, I had missed it completely
mount:cannot mount block device /dev/hd
So, one or more of the partition isn't mounting. Thus everything is stuck. Maybe it's the / partition.
