Some of these steps take a long time to complete, so new linux users should be aware that a few of steps will appear to lock up the server.

When installing quota, #quotacheck -avugm will typically display 2 warnings and then appear to lock up on the command: "quotacheck: Scanning /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 [/]"

This can easily take an hour or more, on some systems, so give it a lot of time if you run into this.

Additionally, performing a full #yum update can take several hours depending on how fast the server is and how fast the internet connection is.

Hi all

I tried to install on my Fedora 8 64 twice without success . 

The installation went fine , ths ISPconfig seens to be worked fine as well but after reboot the system, the Fedora  GUI was not able to start .

I was able to start on text mode to look for the logs but did not find anything that could help this issue .
