http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hello everybody, i'll start by mentioning that i'm new to linux and i've decided that it is time I learnt more about it. i'm trying to install Fedora 17 on vmware workstation 8. i have created a virtual machine and i'm trying to install from Fedora 17 DVD but installation hangs at the beginning. when i press the tab key, it ends up giving me this message: "dracut warning: can't mount root file system Dropping to debug shell dracut:/# " i've followed the recommended settings from vmware's site, unfortunately to no avail. can somebody help me as i really want to start using linux (HowTos)
