You're right, probably a total of 15 minutes if you count the fact i always walk out of the room when the Username and Password prompts appear....

    Hah. I do the same thing! And it's worse if you install from a DVD because you don't have to sit and watch to switch disks.

    I did that last month with a Suse 9.3 from CD's. It didn't like my dual video cards, so when the first disc finished and rebooted, the monitor never fired up. I came back in and thought my pc went nuts. Freaked out for about 5 min. until i just reset the pc and all was fine. From now on, i'll sit and eat peanuts or something.

    Hehe, I wish I was that lucky... I left my gentoo install just after doing something, then there was a powercut and my drive corrupted, managed to save it though...

    Doesn't sound like sitting around would have helped with that one.

    hehe, it wouldnt, except for the fact when the power goes off here, it dips, for 5 or so minutes, then goes off, my pc has a 60w psu or something like that (really low energy), so it doesn't feel the power going down, then it cuts, I would have been able to shut it down
