Boot Failure debian-40r0-i386-kde-CD-1.iso

Downloaded and burned above iso.
Installtion was very fast, without any problems.
Boot went OK until following messages:
Begin: Mounting root file system
Begin: Running /scripts/local-top
Begin: Waiting for root file system
Nothing happens then, computer hangs.
Any ideas how to solve this problem?

I used the kde-iso to get KDE in stead of the default Gnome.
With the 2nd install (same iso) I chose network install after installation of base-system.
Wonderfull, got a nice KDE-desktop :-)
Only had to change the video-driver from nv to vesa.
My GeForce 6200 TurboCache can't handle this driver.
Have to install the NVidia driver; not with apt-get install

Anyhow: it seems that the KDE-install CD is buggy
