Snipping the important bits:


"Fedora Core 4 is optimized for Pentium 4 CPUs"
This means that they expect you to be using P4's as that is the default that they use to prepare the RPMs.


"but also supports earlier CPUs"


This means that any of the so called x86 (sometimes called i386) CPUs will work with it. So yes your Pentium II is fine and will work with it, you will just experiement some performance loss.

Did you confirm that the md5 of the iso file was good? Also what about the burn, was it also good?


You might find that your machine cannot boot CD's ?
