Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel

I get Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel and then it hangs when I put the Slack 9.1 CD in and try to boot off of it. I also recently encountered it when I was trying to install Gentoo, the same problem, except after I installed it, not off the CD.

How do I actually get it to boot the kernel?

It does not go any further than that, or does it get as far as entering non-interactive setup and then hangs?

All I get is to choose what kernel I can boot, then it stops there. It doesn't seem to matter what kernel I choose either, it always hangs at the same thing.
