Question Redhat 7.1 normal or not?

I finished installing Redhat 7.1 on a p133 with 32mg. I installed everything in text mode, not really on purpose, but thats what came up. I made it all the way through the installation with no hang ups or problems, exept when I tryed to make a boot disk and the system froze. This is a laptop so it was a external drive. I waited for a while and all I go was a buzzing coming out of the floppy drive. I resarted and Linux appeard to load without the GUI, I logged into linux and there were no problems.

Lightbulb Thanx a ton

Well... I feel kinda dumb. Thank you, that really saved me! I was about to dump the master boot record and start all over again.
