RH9 install error with signal 8


Trying to install RH9 on a HP Netsever. If I select graphical it it goes through probing and detecting the video card and the mouse, monitor shows: not known. After this it displays a unreadable block of hash color on the screen then displays the nice redhat screen with a blue gradient background. It then flicks back to text mode and says that the X system was started successfully. The next line says that the install terminated abnormally and it then goes on and un-mounts drives and says its safe to re-boot.
If I do a text install I get the same scenario, except after the termination line it says signal 8 error.

I have no idea what this means? Any ideas would be appreciated.

Cheers

signal 8 is a floating point exception, and that's about all I know. Sorry.
