All I have to say Is I had it working and now nothing..

Put Red Hat Linux 7.3 In I have 2 HD'S C:\ with XP SATA 120Gig E: I want linux on this one had it before formatted it and trying to reinstall.. E IDE jumpers set to slave 20Gig...C:Jumpers on primary..

How I was working it was I would switch the setup boot 3 which is my hard drives... If I wanted win xp on the C:\ I would set my scsi option to load in bios.. Well If I wanted Linux to load I would set the third boot function in my bios for Hde0..

Ok Here is my situation after I formatted my Hard drive d: that did have linux on it... Ok it is formatted and now shows as drive E: and my cd rom is D:

Ok I have set bios to scsi put the boot disk in for linux and starter up... Also I have tried with my bios set on the hde0...Neither work

Ok I put my install disk in boot up the cpu.. The text screen pops up and I have like 4 or 5 options... Setup/Install 1. with Graphics 2 show install in text, 3 Like a load up with out looking for hardware devices... 4 Like rescue mode..

Well I have tried everyone of these especially 1 and 2...

This is what happens i see the CD loading everything seems to be taking place it does a quick search on the devices etc in the CPU.. Then a blue screen pops up while things are loading shoots back to text. And the following pops up

install exited abnormally-- received signal 11
sending termination signals...done
sending kill signals...done
disabling swap
unmounting filesystems...
/mnt/runtime done
disabling/dev/loop 0
/proc/bus/usb done
/proc done
/dev/pts done
/mnt/source done
you may safely reboot system..

Oh and Cntrl-Alt-Del... Won't reboot.. I have to hit the reset switch on the CPU... Can anyone help me with this Please
Been fighting this problem for hours and hours and hours (grin)
