i've tried install the linux with the following three distributions: Mandrake, slackware, and Red Hat(newest versions). The entire installation went perfectly except i didn't create a boot disk. After selecting linux from my boot loader(grub), the computer runs a screen that goes through many different check of the system...they all passed. Then the screen just goes blank and freezes. This happens with every distribution that i've tried so far. Could someone please tell me what i did wrong?
thanks in advance.
