1. RedHat 6.1 hangs when detecting mouse type

I'm trying to install RedHat 6.1 on a 'clean' machine.  I can boot from
the floppy and the install looks like it is progressing without any
problems until it attempts to detect the mouse type.  For some reason,
it just hangs here.  I have used five different mice now in addition to
reconfiguring the serial ports to different com settings.  Any ideas on
what is going on?
