System hangs on installation

Arthur,
     Are you installing using the text mode, or graphics mode? In my
experience with similar distros, sometimes the software doesn't configure X
properly, and installation hangs as a result. If you installed in graphics
mode and got a hang, I would try doing a text install (from the initial
installation menu) and see if that goes more smoothly.  You might have to
run Xconfigurator  on your first boot from the harddrive to tweak your
XF86Config file to get X-windows up cleanly, but everything else should
work.

regards, Rich

I am trying to install the newest Scyld operating system on the head node.
Things seem to go well until the end when the system simply hangs. Any
insight?
