Hello all (Total newb to Linux)
First problem was getting the RH9 to install. it freezed at "Loading ochi 1394...". I then found out you can type in boot:"linux nofirewire". and installation was on it way. made boot disk and the computer reboots.
Grub screen: Selected RH9-O.S.<ENTER> now is long list of stuff checking if everything is running [ OK ] unit it reaches this line
"Initializing firewire controller (ohci1394): _"
and it FReezes. (Restarts Computer)
Grub screen: Selected RH9-O.S. press "a" to modify kernel arguments before booting.
"grub append> ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi(i type in)"
"grub append> ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi nofirewire" <enter> the check list of [ok] proceeds. and freeze at line.
"Checking for new hardware" (freezed)
what did i do wrong, any suggestion would be greatly appreciated. or should i simply purchase a copy of SuSe 10.0. Would that make my life easier?
