Error message

I don't get any error message. It just hangs up and won't do anything. I'm using grub as my boot loader.

Specs

The computer i'm using is a 133 with 82 mb ram and a 20 gb hard drive. I'm installing mandrake 7.2. I have gotten this computer to work before as a workstation but I have wanted to make it a server for expirimenting. Thanks.

I never get to the boot loader. It shows Stage 1 and just keeps on blinking for hours. No matter what. I have re-installed this 4 times already and I can't figure out what is the deal.

Do you have bootup disk? If so did you try booting it up with it?
