I'm try install RedHat on IBM Aptiva model L-22, IBM 2238 Monitor, built-in video card, MWave card (sound, modem and fax), but it crashes always.

Expert mode , crash
Text mode, crash
Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2000-10-04 18:23:43 EDT
Did you make the CD you are installing from?
Comment 3 Need Real Name 2000-10-04 22:31:58 EDT
yes, from an .iso obtained from a mirror of RedHat. I use same CD to install on Compaq EP (Celeron, Matrox video card, compaq V50 monitor), and no 
problem, that works OK.
Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2000-10-06 16:44:08 EDT
This kind of problem occurs when either the CD media is bad, or a CD drive has
problems reading a particular CD media.

Could you try a different CD or CD drive in the problematic machine?
