Is this a gui or a text install?
Comment 2 James Riggs 2002-02-20 08:21:19 EST
This happens on both GUI and text installs.  I installed to a machine that had
SuSE 7.3 and told the installer to intall Grub.  The system hung on boot with LI
 lilo from SuSE was not over written.

And you were trying to install the boot loader to the MBR, correct?
Comment 4 James Riggs 2002-02-22 12:50:39 EST
Yes, attempting to install the boot loader to the MBR
