hang up while booting with "L020202020.." and "LI..."

Hi, I've encountered a problem that my new installed turbolinux server 6.1
doesn't boot.
The following two error message were given in the screen while I boot it
with either SystemCommander ver.2.5 and/or NTloader:
Case 1. L02020202020202020202020202.........(no ending)
Case 2. LI
           LI (three lines of "LI" showed up, and then hanged up.)

The case 1 happened to that the turbolinux has been installed in a partition
where comes after a partition whose partition was NTFS.
On the other hand, case 2 only happened when I installed turbolinux into the
first partition.
Note that HDD/OS in the PC having above-mentioned troubles are :
an SCSI-2(2G) has been assigned as drive 0 and has a DOS6.2 (FAT16) and a
NT4.0 (NTFS) operating system installed.
an IDE/ATA66(8G) has been assign as drive 1 and has been used as a DATA
storage drive so far (NTFS, no OS).

The troubled turboxlinux can be booted with a boot-floppy and/or from DOS6.2
by using the "loadlin" utility as follows:
loadlin vmlinuz root=/dev/hdc1 ro
(vmlinuz is the kernel turbolinux used and hdc1 is the partition it

Has anybody there encountered the same things?
Any help would be appreciated.
