Ok, now all on my Compaq Evo N1015v work fine!

How To Install Fedora on it:

>From install boot prompt type: linux nomce ide=nodma pci=off

Skip the cd-rom probe and install it as you prefer ...
... at the end of install, before reboot, press ctrl+alt+f2
and edit /mnt/sysimages/boot/grub/grub.conf, add at the end
of the boot options this directive: "nomce acpi=force"

this is my grub.conf line:

kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl ro root=/dev/Vol0/LvRoot
	hdc=ide-scsi ide=nodma rhgb nomce acpi=force

I have test some other directive (as those used to the boot) but the
driver of network adapter and usb not loaded propertly, the solution has
been "acpi=force".

Many thanks for your attention and sorry for my bad english.
