What machine? Laptop? Try installing without ACPI support. Try to install without pcmcia support. I think there is a option to switch these off.
My RH8 installation hang on a laptop using ACPI. The bios code of most compters don't follow the specifications exactly.
Running the kernel from boot CD succesfully try to update to a newer version with ACPI support.

I have moved CD and harddisk to another machine, and it installed
without hangs. So i guess if there was some thing wrong with mainboard or ram. IF so, what can i do?
