You're right, Linux doesn't support USB2 (it's in the dev kernels apparently). I don't think that should make it freeze though....

Someone told me it might be firewire but I disabled it and still no install. My guess is Linux doesn't support 333 fsb or USB 2.0? Anyway I then installed it on my laptop without a problem, just have to get wireless linksys card working and i'm all set. Still dissappointed I couldn't install it on the system I wanted to......
USB2.0 and 333fsb are not the problem, the problem maybe in the bios and how the memory time is setup. Most of the time when i can not get linux to install that is the problem.

Also USB 2.0 will not make the install lockup. I have linux installed on systems with USB2.0

Interestingly enough I dumped Mandrake 9.0 and decided to give Red Hat 8.0 a try. It installed on my system perfectly, Red Hat 8 has a much cleaner and more professional looking installer as well. Wish I has tried Red Hat sooner, blows Mandrake out of the water, and the programs with it actually work too! Amazing!
