Linux install stops!!!!!

I'm trying to install Linux-Mandrake.  Everytime i get to the point were it
installs the Lilo (first sector or master boot record) an error occurs and I
can't do anything to change it.  Also can't get a boot disk created right
before that.

I'm trying to install on a Toshiba 430 laptop with a 1.3 hd.  I've tried
fdisk /mbr and nothing better happens.


1. Q: Installing Redhat6.2 will stop at 'Installing Packages'

sorry for my poor english.

I need to install Redhat 6.2 (sorry for not 7.2) into my PC,
which has 100GB Harddisk(Western Digital ATA 100, CHS=12161/255/63).
And I got hung up installing at 'Installing Packages'.
No packages are installed.

I sliced harddisk like the following:
  primary 1 (10GB) Win FAT32
  primary 2 ( 2GB) Linux ext2
  primary 3 ( 1GB) Linux swap
  extended 5 (87GB) Linux ext2

# I heard that I should install linux within 1024 cylinder.
# But I'll boot from floppy, so I sure it is not problem.

I thought that the cause of hung-up was about recognizin harddisk,
which means about LBA32 or CHS.
I booted from CD-ROM with 'linux lba' or 'linux hda=12161,255,63',
but both were not be succeeded.

I have no more idea.
Could you give me any advices?
