I got a "Kernel panic" and can't install Fedora 15 on my netbook(Acer D255)

I can't install Fedora 15 on my Acer D255. It is now running windows 7.
i got a LiveCD image from the Fedora Project website and made a Bootable USB disk but it can not work.
i thought it was because my mainboard does not support it, so i installed grub4dos with win7 and prepared a fat32 partition, which contains fedora 15. then i tried to start installation with grub but failed, and i found it is because of a Kernel panic and it stops here.
