Boot Hangs with Redhat, GRUB, Total HugeTLB memory allocated,

PLease help.
I'm installing Red Hat ws enterprise Linux on an older computer and when the install finished and it tried to reboot, the system hung. Now whenever I boot the kernel gets as far as
Total HugeTLB memory allocated, 0
and then it stops.
My system has 64 mg of ram and a 4 gig hd.
Thanx in advance.

Angry RHEL 3 won't boot after install

Did you solve the problem??

I am having the same issue. Emachine 333c, with 256 mg ram, 10 gig hd. I had Red Hat 7.1 working previously, then decided to install RHEL 3. Install went fine, except it gets to a certain point and hangs when I reboot after the install.

There was only 192 Megs of ram before...128+64. I took that out and put in a 256 Meg stick that came from my working Windows machine. It still hangs at the same point.

I tried turining off disabling ACPI and APM in bios. Did not help.

Deer Yeeware,
I disabled the MS-DOS option in my bios.
I assume its related to the way the shell calls the memory.
I hope this helps.
