Troubles Installing Slack - 13.1
I'm having troubles installing Slackware 13.1. The DVD boots up fine, but then when I go to load the hugesmp.s kernel, it seems to break. Sometimes it doesn't get past the "Loading /kernels/hugesmp.s/bzImage..." line.

Only twice have I gotten past that.

If I get past that, I get stuck after "Loading initrd.img...ready.". I've been searching for hours, and I haven't been able to find anything! Any suggestions?

I just restarted it and tried using the "huge.s" kernel. Again, freezes at "ready".

You should not double post.

Verify MD5 checksums, make sure the ISO you used to burn onto the DVD is not corrupt.
