This report doesn't show the linux partition  on drive e which is I think ext3 of about 50gig
 
I've tried installing FC4 for 64 bit - but it sticks at /sbin/loader so that Linux never really starts!
 
I've attempted linux text  but sticks at same place.
 
I'm using a new ATi X800 card which is the only thing diffrent since \i last used this kit with FC3
 
Is it the card or something else? Any solutions?
 
HELP appreciated :-)
