Exclamation Mandrale 8.0 - Segmentation faults

I have been trying to get Mandrake 8.0 installed for
the past couple of days. However, I seem to be getting
an error called a segmentation fault around the part
of the install where you select the packages you want.
I want to install linun, but I can't. I am running a
Celeron-533, 256Mb ram, two hard drive ( one 30 Gb,
the other 20Gb), nVidia TNT 2, two network card ( smc,
netgear), and a Diamond Sonic Impact s100 sound card
on a Iwill motherboard (vd133)

Please Help!!!!

Are you using the GUI install program? Try to create floppies for the text based install program and try that out. There should be instructions on the CD. See if you get the same error.

It's a good thing you have a ton of disk space. You'll need it to install and run Mandrake.
