We need LOTS more info, Peter. *Computer make/model (or processor type

and motherboard make/model), video card, type of hard drive (SATA, SCSI,

IDE), memory size, that sort of thing. *Also make sure the BIOS on the

machine is the current release (check with the computer or motherboard

maker's website).

Thanks for the reply
Rick. Here's what I can tell you about my system:

Dell DM051 x86

x86 Family 15* Model 4
Stepping 7 Intel 2793 MHz

Intel 82845G chipset

SATA drive
BIOS version Dell Inc
A05, 3 /31/2006 (Phoenix ROM BIOS PLUS version* 1.10 A05)

The most common problems have to do with interrupt routing, DMA

channels, APMI issues and that sort of thing. *There's lots of work-

arounds and we need to know what may be appropriate for you. *If you

could tell us what's displayed when you hit "ALT-F3" and "ALT-F4" when

it's stalled, that may help as well.

Nothing's displayed at
all. I don't have a problem with either the F7 or FC6 boot DVDs!

Does this describe your problem?
