This problem also happend on x86_64 architecture on clean system. After
installation clean Fedora I couldn't boot it because of CRC error in kernel
image (!!!). I installed newer kernel using rescue CD and run grub-install and
again Error 15 appeared.

Comment 7 Piotr Wojciechowski 2006-03-22 11:22:06 UTC
Package from FC5 on i386 works ok

Comment 8 Christian Iseli 2007-01-20 00:49:00 UTC
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

Works fine in FC6
