I installed FC5 on an old Compaq server and I have done it a couple of
The time before I only had a couple of the devices with ! in the name.
I had to use linux text to get it to install. Don't think it has much of a
video card. Can anyone tell me why the ! in the device name with df?
fdisk doesn't show it.

Also selinux stops it from booting. Had to add selinux=0 into grub command
line to get it to boot. I don't remember having the option during the
intall to turn off selinux. In the Xwindows install yes, text install no.
And I ran into the problem with network cards switching names.
dmesg lists them one way and /etc/sysconfig/hwconf has them the other way.
