That doesn't sound right. According to the Help available from the
Themes control panel, the theme should be tarred and gzip'd when you
install it. I did try tar -zxf on one and got a directory that the
installer didn't know what to do with.

I'm trying to install FC2 Test 1 on a Digital PC 5400 (an old Pentium
Pro box). Curiously, Knoppix boots on it fine, but it has failed to boot
up FC1, Mandrake 9.2, and now FC2 from CD, saying
isolinux: Found something at drive=9F
isolinux: Looks like it might be right, continuing...
isolinux: image checksum error, sorry...
Boot failed: press a key to retry...
No problem, I say; I'll make a bootable floppy. I double check the
README files, and then head to the images directory...but there are no
.img files to be found there.
What should I do?
I actually don't intend to use RAID with Linux. It's just that I am dual
booting, and it sucks to have to unplug the RAID drives in order to boot to
If there was some way of just getting the install to ignore this kind of
onboard RAID, we'd all be better off.
Otherwise I'm going to have to change distros and build my own kernel.
