I'm just after getting my lovely brand new copy of Mandrake 8, only to
find that, after two attempts, it will not boot. It installs fine, but
consistently manages to freeze when the kernel displays "freeing used
kernel memory". It's freeing 933KB of memory, which seems a little high.
My machine is a Gateway 600Mhz Athlon, Advansys SCSI interface, Hollywood+
card, two smallish hard drives.
Anyone any ideas as to what could be wrong? The machine runs a heavily
customised Redhat 6.2 (with kernel 2.2.18) and Debian 2.2 just fine,
