Mandrake 9.1 Installation freezes

I'm trying to install Mandrake 9.1 on 4 ancient computers. The installation went smoothly for two of them but the other two freeze when it starts installing packages (usually when trying to install bash). The mouse still works but installation doesn't get anywhere.

I also tried doing an NFS install from one of the machines I got working. The directory is mounted successfully on the second computer, which then says entering 2nd stage install, but then the screen fills with error messages, the first one being something about gtk2:: (sorry, having to relay this from memory).

Has anyone else run into similar problems?

Thanks in advance!

I am also having problems installing both Mandy 9.1 and Mandy 9.2 vi the network. I am using a HP Omnibook 2100 and a PCMCIA ethernet card linking to a PC running Mandy 9.0. I have tried to export both the DVD and the files that have been coppied directly to HD, but at varying points in the install, I get "error 7" from the network, and the laptop shuts down, or I get a lot of failed RPMs. I don't have any problems with the network card once I do have an operating system, so I am hesitant to suspect that....
