I am trying to install RedHat 5.2 on a Compaq Presario 4532.
I boot from the diskette. Things appear to run fine for a while -- perhaps 40
messages flash across the screen.
But when I get to "Checking 'HLT' Instruction," one of two things happens: (1)
the machine freezes right away, or (2) I get a General Protection 0044 message
followed by a register dump followed by five repetitions of "idle process
cannot sleep," and then the machine freezes. I have to power off/on to get back
I need help. I bought the Presario three months ago solely to be a Linux
machine, and I can't get past first base!
I would also welcome suggestions re other places where I might get advice.
TIA -- David Copp
