RH Linux won't boot... hardware issues maybe?
I have a machine I setup for testing: Tyan Tomcat motherboard (onboard sound, video, network,) 650MHz PIII, 192MB RAM, 10GB harddrive, ATAPI IDE CDROM, floppy. I had Win98 installed on it and it ran fine (testing SAMBA) Then I formated and installed RH7.3. Installation went perfect but upon attempting the first boot after the installation it froze after:
Welcome to Red Hat Linux
Press 'I' to enter interactive startup.
Mounting proc filesystems: [ OK ]
Unmounting initrd: [ OK ]
Configuring kernel parameters [ OK ]
Then it just sits at that flashing cursor with no error messages at all never getting past that point...
I then tried installing RH8.0 from scratch with the exact same results. :-? I have tried swaping the RAM around and even unplugging the CDROM and floppy but I still hang up at the same place. Anyone have an idea of what this might be or where else I might look? I've been working on this for days...
