I just got myself a Compaq V6000 AMD64 X2 and when i run the cd, it stalls on startup at the serial port configuration, it wants to restore from hardware settings, only issue is I only have USB ports, not any RS serial ports.

I actually figure its the next step thats stalling, but i don't know what it is. Can anyone offer a pointer, or maybe a boot argument that will by pass this. Other distros load, Mandriva and Suse, but I like Mepis (and Kubuntu, incidentally, same issue as well).

Thanks for any help.
