I got the CD's straight from fedora's website and then got the DVD from Duke's mirror using Bittorrent. Anyway both sets of install software get to "Disableing IRQ 158" (I think might be 185) and it freezes and then in order to reboot back to windows I have to disconnect the power (hitting the Power switch on the tower does not work it reboots to a black screen). Eitherway i got Everest Ult. and I cant find this IRQ #. Whats wrong? I hate windows and want to get away from it at almost any cost.

I was thinking it was more a P&P setting in the BIOS and was trying to find an answer.
Glad you got it figured out.

Also, next time you try running the installer or live cd, try launching with the boot parameters:

noapic acpi=noirq

That's what helped me when i was trying to install the 64-bit Ubuntu distro.

BTW unplugging the USB devices is only temporary once you update FC4 you can use them again. At least thats what the fedora forum tells me.
