Yes, here are some notes I made a couple of months ago:
Trying to install FC3-test2 - without much success so far.
I've downloaded and burned the 4 CDs.
If I just try to install by responding Enter to the boot prompt
I get as far as trying to read the local CD drive,
which is "not found".
If I respond "linux ide2=0x180,0x386 pci=off" I get a kernel panic.
If I respond "linux ide2=0x180,0x386 noacpi" I get a little further -
the CD drive is found, and appears in the boot messages as hde,
but then I get garbage on the screen,
and "install exited abnormally - received signal 11".
Now I'm trying "linux ide2=0x180,0x386 noacpi noprobe";
this seems to hang after the screen "Loading the ohci1394 driver".
(I should have said that "linux ide2=0x180,0x386"
also gave a kernel panic;
but someone on a Sony-C1 mailing list had suggested
adding "pci=off" and someone else suggested "noacpi".)
