RH 9 hangs on hardware detection
 
:newbie: Hi, I hope someone can help me here. I am completely new to Linux and just tried installing RH 9 om my new laptop. I use GRUB to dual boot RH 9 and XP. The XP portion is 100%, problem is that RH 9 hangs when detecting hardware. I fixed the firewire hang issue by booting with NOFIREWIRE in the boot option line. Also, how do I get into Interactive startup? I press, i, I anything like mad, but no joy.

Have the same problems with linux and fireware on this laptop.
I tried FreeBSD 5.0 and ACPI caused a Kernel Panic.
So maybe that's the next thing causeing your crash.
