I am attempting to set up a simple RedHat box that will function as a home file server, and someday a web server when I get DSL. The computer is a P366 on an ASUS P2B-f Motherboard. It has about 160 mb RAM, and two hard drives, a 2 gig and a 1 gig. I am trying to do an install of Red Hat 8.0 with the boot and root (/) on HDA and the /swap and /home direcories on HDB. I test the cd's, and they are ok. I have used these disks successfully on other computers. However, on this guy, I get through the cd test, and it sits for 5-10 minutes and then finally gets to the install selections. I make it through that ok, and then I get to the actuall install. It usually locks up around 25% complete or so, and it is not always on the same package when it happens. Right now it has been sitting at 37% for a couple of hours. The hard drives lights stay on, and they cd-rom lights stay on, but I don't hear much activity. Every so often the hard drives click. But I never hear the cd rom spin up. This problem occurs in Graphical or text install mode. I should have enough RAM, right? And I have done installs on computers as slow as a 166 with this same cdROM drive. Any Ideas what's going wrong, and where I can make it right?
