No ideas without some information. Please post your /boot/grub/menu.lst file and your /etc/fstab file for starters.

Some information about your system would also be helpful.

can you install it on a low spech machine? I have an old intel 333mhz, 128 SDRAM. Want to use this to get use to it, rather than install it on my main machine. What are the min specs?
