I am attempting to install Redhat 5.2 on my home PC. When I boot from
I press enter to start the installation, and the welcome message is
displayed. I hit OK to proceed to language selection and again hit OK to
the default English. I then get the keyboard set up, and hit OK to
The screen then clears and nothing else happens. I can switch between
all of the
virtual consoles EXCEPT Alt-f2 (the shell) which does nothing
(worrying!). I can see
no obvious error message in either of the log windows (unless something
off the top. Can I scroll the shell back down to see it all ??).
Anyway, I tried booting with "expert" mode, but it seemed identical -
I suspect it is some kind of autoprobing problem, but I don't seem to be
track it down. I removed all cards except the VGA (even tried another
one of those).
Any help would be appreciated.
My system is as follows...
686MX PR300, 64Mb, Quantum Fireball SE2.1A, STB Velocity 128 video card,
AOpen AP5T motherboard.
