    I just downloaded Fedora Core 5.
    The entire package has 5 cds + 1 rescue cd
    I placed these 6 cds in D drive of windows through following path.
    D:/parag/os/
    Thus all the 6 cds are present in os directory which is present in parag directory which in turn is present in D drive.
    This Drive is fat32 formated

    I inserted the first disk and fired #linux askmethod at menu prompt
    Then I choose the installation media hard disk
    Then I searched my partition in which 6 cds were stored. It happened to be:
    /dev/hda5/parag/os/

    The os directory showed all 6 cds as well.

    But when I selected first disk (Disk #1 of #5).
    It exited showing error "Installtion failled"

    Where am I going wrong?
    Is it something to do with Resce CD.

    You need not have the Rescue image at all ...But I don`t think that can cause a problem..Once it ask for the source you can remove youtr cd1.Try if this works ...

    Try moving the ISO images to the root of the hda5 (D: ) partition.

    I am unsure how Fedora handles installation from hard disk, but if it is asking you for the path of the ISO image, you need the mount your D: drive first, and then access it. /dev/hda5/parag/os is the incorrect path to access a file on your D: drive.
