I have booted the install in safe mode, and completed another install.
Same problem. The machine has 1GB of RAM. I will try downloading a 4.10 CD
and installing that. Another thing i noticed which may or may not be
related is this error message (the machine is a single cpu athlon):

mptable_probe: MP Config Table has bad signature: <ASCII smiley face>
