Unhappy RH 7.2 Post Installation Problems !!!

HI Folks,

I got very good response from here and
finally I bought some more memory to
install RH 7.2 on my campaq presario
laptop.(20GB HD, 48MB RAM)

I installed using the text mode.
I used automatic partition for
the 20 G HD.
/dev/hda1 - 50MB /boot
/dev/hda2 - 18some-Gig /
/dev/hda3 - 192 MB swap

All the packages were installed
and while performing the post
install processing.......>>>>>

the computer suddenly reboots.
and my Grub has garbage and some
files are corrupted and I could
not load linux and run X windows.
I will be able to boot from the
floppy which I create when i try
to cheat the install to upgrade
till it asks me to create a boot

I tried Graphical mode also and
before the first disk finishes
the computer reboots.

This is driving me crazy after a
lot of investment.

Can somebody help me out and what
might be the problem.

thank you very much in advance,
- Sri
