Question RedHat 7 installation


I am attempting to install RedHat Linux 7 but the computer freezes at a certain point during the cd installation. I have tried on multiple computers (with the same hd) so I don't think it's the computer. I now have a Micron Millennia computer running @ 200mhz & 64 mb ram. Everything goes smooth until the progress bars during installation stop moving and the hd light stops going (I even let it sit for about 8hrs once). Any suggestions?

Thanks, Josh

I tried to install Red Hat 7.1 on a system with 64MB of RAM and It did the same thing everythime. The problem was solved when I increased the memory to 128MB RAM
