Description of problem:
When booting with the beta rc1 disk, the computer just kept on rebooting and there never was an install screen. All I saw was the 3 second timeout and a message at the top left corner stating "trying to allocate 1135 pages... for vmlinuz" (I think it said).

I got it installed on both my computers by installing rc3. It went as smooth as silk on both. Thanks.
