red hat 8 install problems
A couple nights ago I finaly got around to loading a copy of RH8 that I have had laying around for a while, onto a win98 system I have at home. It worked fine, and I decided that before I dl everythng that I was gonna need I would reformat all my drives, and I would reinstall both windows and RH8. I reformated everything and reinstalled windows without a problem, but when I try to reload linux I get just past the piont where it recognizes the HDs and the CDroms, and I get this: blk: queue c02e836e, i/o limit 4095mb (mask 0xffffffff), and the system locks up. I cant even turn the thing off with the onoff switch I need to unplug it from the wall. I can however open and close both cd drives. Does anyone have any clue as to what might cause this and what I can do about it? Or where I can go to get help?
