Hi keezel, long time no see.
I have come across many, but something about this one makes me suspect the HDD. Unless the installer is very clever, if it hits a bad sector it will just freeze up...........that is certainly my experience with Win2K and XP. A smaller distro might load where a more bloated one might not?............I am not a Linux guru, I just use it a bit
It does sound like a memory issue, though. I had a box like that once.
I would test the HDD, as well as the RAM.
It would be interesting to see if Puppy Linux would install?
If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?
