booting problem


I installed Red Hat 8.0 and when i try to boot it, it stops when it says "Configuring kernel parameters:". I have also installed Mandrake linux and it did the same thing. What is causing this?

Welcome to LQ, Pat.

Could you give us some other details, such as your hardware setup, in as much detail as possible? That would help us enormously. Cheers.
