Mandriva Installation
I'm tryng to install mandriva LE2005.The Boot operation goes well,I press enter to let the installation begin,but after a while the screen becomes black and the PC freezes.
So I try to launch the installation process using text mode in order to see what the hell will happen.PC freezes again,but now i know that the problem regards "Initializing cryptographic API".
So,what options should I pass to the kernel to allow the installation process to start correctly?
no acpi didn't work!
Thanx for your answers.

On ather PCs the installation process starts correctly.
What would you like to know about my PC?
No strange hardware...I didn't find any problem on installing other distros (Slackware,Gentoo,Suse,mandrake).
So what?
Thanx for suggestions,hoping for more.

Ok I installed 10.1 first and then it works. I think it didn't like fat or something.

So,if I install Mandrake (a basic installation) and then upgrade with Mandriva it should work...
Let's try.
