Have you tried turning off ACPI in the install?
Ok, when I boot the menu has default and then the second choice is to
install with ACPI turned on...
Tried that one and it progresses just a tad further. It reports:
Orm0: <ISA Option ROMs> at iomem
0xe8000-0xedfff,0xc8000-0xcbfff,0xc0000-0xc7fff on isa0
Pmtimer0 on isa0
Then the computer freezes at that point.
What else could I tell you about this machine?
4 X 200MHz processors.
Scsi hardware raid controller.
4 drives 2 x 9Gb and 2 X 4 Gb
Safe mode just hung on the orm0: line.
Starting to wonder if I have MB issues.
The 4th menu item is to boot single user mode.
This one hangs just as the default one does.
Other interesting things I just noticed.
Eisab0: <PCI-EISA bridge> at device 15.0 on pci0
Eisa0: <EISA bus> on eisab0
Isa0: <ISA bus> on eisab0
Pci0:> <memory, RAM> at device 20.0 (no driver attached)
Guess I am back to requesting thoughts again.
Thank you to the people that have responded so far.
