9.2 installation problem at bootloader

Hey all, having a few probs getting through the 9.2 installation - firstly it locks up my asus cdrw every time at package choice but i now use me dvd and it seems o.k - only thing is that when i get to the "bootloader" part of the install i get this message "insmod'ing module aes, loop failed" after that i cick next and another message saying "lilo failed" i really haven't a clue about this as this is me first linux experience- so far its not great!
any ideas

I think you should try Mandrake 9.1. There are other people who have had trouble using 9.2 and installing it. I use version 9.1 and so far it's running flawlessly!

Let us know if that works with you or not.

did you make a boot floppy? If you have one, you might be able to boot linux (assuming the one thing that failed is installing lilo).
