installation problem (might be related to all versions)


I've tried to install Slackware 11 and chose once test26.s kernel (2.6.18#4)
ans once huge26.s kernel.

I reinstalled once with huge26.s kernel and once with test26.s kernel

both finished installation, but then, after bootloader, I get black screen.... not any sign of being alive/dead.

suggestions???

I do not enter to the terminal!!!

it's going on to a black screen, and when I tried to pass on boot the "vga=NORMAL" parameters,
it gets me a "system halted"
message.
