RH 8.0 fails to boot
I am trying to get RedHat 8.0 to boot on my system. However, every time I try to boot the only result is my monitor going into standby mode.
The install went ok, after I started it with the noapic flag.
The current line in GRUB is:
kernel /boot/linuz-2.4.14-18smp ro hdd=ide-scsi
(it may not be 100% correct as I am currently at work and my problematic machine is at home) I also tried booting with the noapic and nosmp flags, but they didn't help.
2 Athlon 1600+
Radeon 8500 (XFree is set to use the generic VESA driver, which tested ok, as the 8500 driver failed the screen test.)
Two IDE HDs
Dell P990 monitor
USB 2.0 card that came with the A7M.
As far as I can tell, there is no HDD activity after I hit boot.
I do not see any errors on screen, as the screen goes to sleep.
Any suggestions whould be great.
