Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2002-08-02 01:43:09 EDT
Does it hang once vmlinuz has started loading?
Comment 2 StK 2002-08-02 05:46:14 EDT
It never stops loading vmlinuz.
It keeps reading from CD-Rom, but it loads vmlinuz for over 15 minutes
without any progress....

Did you mediacheck your CDs?
Comment 4 StK 2002-08-13 04:54:07 EDT
Yes, i did.
The first CD was a RW, but Mediacheck went ok.
I burned another CD, a normal CD with the same result.

RH 7.3 Boots without any problems!
