I have a Dell notebook computer with an intel celeron processor. When installing, I get the partition completed on custom installation. The next step is to format & install, but the computer crash. I tried both workstation installations, and custom installation in both text and graphics mode. Same place the software crash. I down loaded the boot.img, ICP_Driver_Disk.img, and the Updates.img. I tried all four combinations of the new image files, but the software crashed at the same place: In Text mode: In the LILO Configuration window, answer the question of placing LILO in the 1st sector of boot partition. The error was "Install exited abnomally -- receive signal 11" In Graphics mode: Click next on the configuring partition mode window and received multiple errors of not reading from the directory "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/..." and aborted installation process. Note: To ensure linux would install, I install a version 6.0 which worked (w/ a conflict with the video and PCMCIA drivers). I removed version 6.0 & purchased version 6.1. But, I cannot even install this version.

The newsgroup suggestion on changing to type 5 worked. You can close this item out.
