    Never tied freespire.

    Only others (RH, SUsE, Fedora, Mandrake, Knopix, bla bla bla)

    If it doesn't install, try reinstall. Does it freeze at the same point? Bad disk or drive. Reburn ISO, replace CD drive, etc.

    Every flaky install issue has been old hardware related. Swap stuff and install if necessary.

    Arrrrrhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

    Silly post, but give the disk a few horizontal wipes across your knee,...not circular. Try again.

    95%+, hardware or disk.

    Just my $.02.
