Description of problem:
I'm finding it impossible to install Red Hat 9 on one of the machines where I
tried to do it. The problem is that the installer keeps crashing. Sometimes it
crashes with an Oops just before loading /sbin/loader, sometimes it aborts with
signal 11 after I say to skip the media check, sometimes it crashes with an
Aieee! just before asking if I want to partition using Disk Druid. The one time
I got it 'till disk druid it gave an error saying that there was no disk device
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Put the CD1 in the CD drive
2.Boot the machine
Actual Results: It crashes somewhere during the beginning of the instalation.
Expected Results: It should run fine.
The machine in question has a Athlon 1800+ with 256Mb of RAM and an Asus A7S333
motherboard (http://www.asus.com/prog/spec.asp?m=A7S333&langs=01). The disk is a
Western Digital 40G. Additionally I already tried to use a differend HDD, update
the BIOS, change varying BIOS settings to no avail. Graphical mode and text mode
makes no difference.
On a side note I also can't install SuSE 8.2 on it (it stalls on the Partition
Check at the beginning) but Windows XP gives no problems.
