"Processing... please wait" Crash on Install
Hi, I'm attempting to Install Linux for the first time.
I got the ISO (10.1) of the Mandrake website, burnt it to DVD and am installing it onto a machine with the following spec:
AMD XP 400FSB 3600
GA-7N400 Pro 2 Gigabyte Motherboard
Asus Radeon 9200SE Graphics Card
USB Mouse/PS2 Keyboard
Anyhow, when I try to install, I get past the first options menu (I.E. "Select More Options or Install Now") and then it says its detecting USB devices, Disabling IRQ ports... and then screen goes black, and down in the corner it says "Processing... please wait".
And well... I'm a patient guy so I waited. And waited. Overall I think its had a ten hours over three tries. And that takes the mick a bit.
So uhh... I've tried searching the net to find out why its crashing and nothing seems to exist to help as far as I can see. So can anyone here offer any advice?
