    linux redhat 9 stops booting

    Hi there friends,

    I am very new to linux. I have just successfully installed the linux OS redhat 9. When the first time I rebooted the system, the system is not booting up. It halts or hangs at the following:

    Initializing RT netlink socket
    apm: BIOS version 1.2 flags 0x03 (driver version 1.16)

    Please help me shed some lights on this issue to solve the problem.

    Thanks a lot.

    try disabling plug n play in your bios and if that doesn't work, try disabling advanced power management in it and see if that works.
