Unhappy 9.1 new install segment fault

I installed slack 9.1 2 times and have the same error... when i try to start x it doesnt start... It also does not give the readout of anything besides sayint\g it is shutting down. If i type /var/log/xfree86.log it comes back with nothing and says segmentation fault (core dumped)... If i do a ls on / it says the same thing with no directories.. What is going on? do i have bad iso images? I dont get any errors while the installl is running either...

thanks toanyone that can help

You could always do a md5sum on your iso images

you can always buy the Slack 9.1 CD set and support open source, then you would'nt need to worry about bad ISO's or needing to do MD5sum.

Look at your memory blocks. Try running a memorytest like Mem test-86.
