Thanks for the hint. Now I could finish the installation (which takes
like forever (speaking in terms of 2 hours which is pretty strange
given the raw power of this machine)) however after rebooting the box
behaves weird to say the last:
I started out be entering "portsnap fetch". Everything runs fine up to
the point when I see "Verifying snapshot integrity". Then the system
completely comes to a grind. After sending the "portsnap fetch" to the
background (^Z) and entering "top" the machine completely freezes
without any indication as to why.
I've already done a complete hardware diagnosis - everything OK.
Any ideas on how to track this one down?
Thanks much in advance,
