    I think i am having a similar problem???? I recently installed Redhat 8.0 and the install went fine but when i try to boot it goes thru the startup lines and then it just sits at
    "welcome to redhat linux press i to enter interactive startup"
    "Mounting proc filesystem [ok]"
    "unmounting initrd: [ok]"
    "configuring kernel parameters [ok]"

    and then it just sits there what can i do for this?

    I don't think your problem is related at all, emillme2. I'll try and solve it, but please repost it in a seperate thread, so that the replies don't get all mixed up.

    Anyway, crippler, this made me realize that you had written RedHat in the subject line. I guessing that it's 8.0, since it has known problems with Unicode. Am I right? If I am, please give me the output of "rpm -V kbd" and "rpm -ql kbd | grep unicode_start".

    yes you are right redhat 8.0

    first one is

    [root@localhost root]# rpm -V kbd
    package kbd is not installed

    [root@localhost root]# rpm -ql kbd | grep unicode_start
    [root@localhost root]#

    sorry had to edit forgot what the second command was you wanted output from

    kbd isn't installed?! That's a bit strange. Anyway, just install it from your RH CDs and you'll probably be fine.

    You must have done something really strange when you installed since you're missing all those packages?
    Anyway, edit /etc/sysconfig/i18n, and change LANG to en_US.

    You know, that's really the bad part with RPMs. If anything, you can try installing packages with --nodeps.
