RH8-9 startup hangs
Hi, please somebody may have an idea about this problem:
(excuse my english)
pc athlon 1700
integrated board asus a7nv266 w/geforce 2 mx but now working with a Radeon 9500 (AGP)
hd 30 gb
WinXP & Win98 installed, 3 more user partitions.
* I made room to install Red Hat 8, the whole installation went OK, but at starting the system by first time, it stuck between "Activating Swap Partitions" & "Finding module dependences".
* I reinstalled it again 3-4 times with always the same problem. Before drop the CDs i tried a last time and it worked, even i installed some programs.
* Next week the same problem again.
*I downloaded RH9, checked media systems and installed it, all OK, but the system hangs at the same place.
it's my PC?
bad burned CD?
to many partitions? (linux /boot at /dev/hda8)
Linux init file? (initrd i think)
i hope someone have an idea cause i'm a newbie, thanks very much.
