Mandrake 9.x hangs before installing bootloader
I tried the Mandrake 9.1 RC 2 installation the other day and got the following problems:
1) Selecting Swedish language causes my USB mouse to stop moving within a few seconds. English worked okay though.
2) When the installation was about to prepare installation for a boot loader (I think it said something like "Preparing / loading boot loader"), it just hanged. I waited for several minutes and no sign of activity.
3) I tried the text based install and it didn't lock up on me, but X failed to install and configure properly.
I then tried the last non-beta Mandrake, 9.0, and that one hangs too at exactly the same place as 9.1 RC 2.
(2) is really the show stopper here. I think if that problem goes away, the rest of the installation may have a shot at working. I would welcome any ideas on finding out the cause.
I have an AMD Athlon XP 1900, Microsoft USB intellimouse, GeForce 4, SB Audigy.
