I am not as optomistic as the other posters. You did not tell us how
much RAM you have nor the speed of your processor but my experience with
a P3 500 MHz processor and 384 Meg of ram has not been stellar.

My experience is that FC6 is uniquely unsuited for older processors with
older cards. I have not been able to trace down exactly why this is true
but in my case , at least, it is true. So your problems in getting your
system up and running does. not surprise me.

My advice is to use an earlier version of Fedora is you want to stick
with this computer.
