Slackware 9.0 installation problem


Hi,
I'm trying to install slackware 9.0 on my comp., so far with no success. I'm using the CD-ROM installation.
i boot the comp. from the CD-ROM, press enter (or bare.i), and when it comes to this phase:
Partition check:
hda

booting doesn't continue.
i've tried using a mandrake (9.1) CD, and everything works fine, so what could be the problem?

system:
CPU: P2 - 400mhz
MB: ASUS P2B (i440BX)
Memory: 256MB SDRAM
HD: Maxtor 6L040J2

partitioning:
1. Win2000 (FAT 32) - 4 GB
2. FAT 32 - 8 GB
3. unallocated - 26 GB

I haven't got a solution to the
problem, but rather have to confirm
it ... where knoppix (3.x) and Slack 8.1
start just fine, Slack 9 and RH 7.3
fall over at the very same point on
a PII 300 .... I'm not quite sure what
causes the problem, and after installing
8.1 I could upgrade to 9 and the box
is running it now, goes past that check
during normal boot...

Cheers,
Tikn
