"searching for available packages" lockup
More Mandrake 9.2 installation freezes.... Ok, I figured out how to use the alternative boot image file and that got me past the lockup at IDE detection. I decided to erase the windows partition and got past that stage; now, however, I am stuck with a frozen screen at "searching for available packages."
The CD rom just stops after awhile and won't even let me use the eject button to try CD 2 !!!!! What should I do??????
