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!
