1. setting up linux on toshiba tecra 8000

I am trying to setup linux(got it from linux- on my tecra 8000. I had NT on the
laptop. I installed linux on different partition
but I have two problems.

1. when it boots up, the system hangs at
LI...If I try to boot from the disk(during linux
intallation,I made boot disk also), it comes up

2. Also the windows running on linux seems to
repaint very slowly... It appears as if you are
using X-windows on a dialup.

Thanks in advance,
