Well I'm a newbie but I had it install fine from my HD after 2 goes! I
think it only like's to be installed clean! onto a fresh file system. the
only problem I had was that I crashed on detecting my NIC! I never put in
0x into the cmd line! Doh! Same thing happened o the 2nd attempt but with
the 0x for the mem address. I killed the setup for the nic and let it
restart, worked fine then!
