RH 7.3 Stalls install

I have installed RH 7.3 a couple times as I try to learn it but this one
machine got me.

This machine, an old P166, I get to the part where it says red hat linux,
with the clouds up top, and then it stalls.

It stalls at the lines:

ide0 at 0x1f0-0x1f7,0x3f6 on IRQ 14
ide1 at 0x170-0x177,0x376 on IRQ 15

Any suggestions on whats stalling this installation?

Try typing "text" at the boot prompt. The machine may be too old for the default graphical install.

I tried that. I stalls at the same spot. This is moments after typing ENTER or "text" then ENTER. It never gets close to the graphical part. Just stalls right there. I have used the same media elsewhere. It just seems like it dies on that IRQ14,15 line.
