Here are the basics:
Dell Dimension 4100 w/ 2 hard drives - both on the primary ide controller
running two installations of win2000 - one on each drive
installed red hat (my first linux install) on the second drive after win2000
it seems to have installed OK - used GRUB and if I understand correctly it installed in the MBR
after installation is finished (3 times so far) I boot and grub comes up allowing me to choose between DOS and RED HAT. I choose red hat and a page of text screams by and then a second page starts and then stops with a blinking cursor on a blank line and there is nothing that I can do at that point that gets any response other than rebooting.
from the text that I can see on the page where it hangs I can see no obvious problems. The last line to show up before it hangs is:
apm: bios version 1.2 flags 0x03 (driver version 1.16)
I can boot into both of my win2000 installations without problem
not even one cryptic error message!!!!!
any suggestions would be appreciated
