Last Saturday the 10th I received a copy of 6.0 at the
Houston Area Local PC meeting.  I have not been able to do
an install. The lastest problem, is the installer hangs
while trying to install the Afterstep file manager.

At first I thought it was due to a problem with the Aha2940
SCSI card. The problem re-occurred after I removed the card
from the system, so it appears not to be a SCSI problem.

Any information on how to work around this would be
appreciated.

Thanks,

Dan Harmon

It sounds like a media problem or the partition you are installing too
is not large enough or not set up correctly. Please either try
different install media (cdrom) and also make sure that you have a
root partition configured correctly and large enough using the disk
druid utility.
