Unhappy slackware crashed while installing


Ok earlier today I decided to give Slackware a go, before i was using Redhat 9
the first disk installed no problem, but when I got to the second disk it crashed after 15minutes(I cant remeber exactly which package it was). So I restarted the installation from disk one, again it crashed 15mins in to disk 2.

Anyone know why this happening, also is possible to continue from where it crashed? see if i can get past it.

Thanks in advance.
:-)

if it's disk 2, it's either crashing on kde or gnome...probably kde cause i think it installs alphabetically....try installing again, except this time don't install kde....slack functions perfectly without kde, and once you have it up and running, you can always go back and install it from the disk...
