Matt - Thanks for the reply.  First I want to say that I pulled one stick of 
ram (I have 2x512mb) and installed it again and it worked!!!!!

AMAZING - Finally!!!  I tried to install Yarrow about 8 times on this pc (as 
I said in the original post, I've installed .95 Severn about 3 or 4 times 
with no probs).  With Yarrow, almost everytime I tried a different partition 
setup.  I tried using Disk Druid, cfdisk, fdisk in hopes that maybe Fedora 
setup just wasn't reading them correctly (for one reason or another), I even 
tried the "auto partition" feature that wiped my entire disk.  I know my 
disks are good and I had been doing ALOT of distro installing on them as the 
pc is now - with the 1GB of ram included.  But I did read somewhere about 
having this much ram in certain situations could cause problems, but I kinda 
breezed over it not paying a whole lot of attention because everything was 

I've since placed the other 512 of ram in the machine and all is running 
great now!  I would like to look into testing this ram though - just incase 
;) - you never know
