Debian (Sarge) Install Freezing


I recently download 'debian-testing-i386-netinst.iso' and I had no problems downloading or burning. When I boot from the disk I get a splash screen and it says, 'Press F1 for help, or ENTER to boot: _' I leave the underscore because the I Beam was frozen like that. Once that screen appeared, nothing would happen. I couldn't do anything. I have no clue what is happening, or what I did wrong. I've tried two separate netinst ISO's and they've all done that. Am I getting the right version (i386)? Is it my burner? Or is it the disks?

how did you burn them? make sure that you followed the relevant instructions for burning isos- try this link:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...iewcat&catid=8
or google "burn iso"

is this your first linux? (IE are you trying to burn in windows?)
did you check the md5sum?

If you're Processor is a pentium class, than yeah, you got the right one.
Try the F1 for help.

I've burned the Woody version before, and installed that perfect. I'm currently using an AMD Sempron (yes it's horrible). Soon, I'm building a new system, so I'll have AMD's 64-bit. I can't do anything at the splash screen. It's frozen, or it sure seems like it.
So I take it I got the wrong version? How would I check the ms5um file? Thanks for all the help and suggestions, by the way.


EDIT: I saw the ms5um thing on your link. Excuse that comment.

EDIT 2: The ISO is 'OK'.

You must have the wrong ISO, you said you have the i386, wich is for intel, But you have a AMD proc.
You will have do download the ISO for AMD.
