The Linux 6.1 installer hangs on line Checking 'hlt' instruction... when installing on Intel Pentium Pro Motherboard AP440FX Bios 1.00.11.CT1 booting from the 6.1 boot floopy, also tried downloading the latest boot img and received same result.

Actually at this point the installer isn't running yet, as the kernel crashes before any filesystems are mounted. Try "linux no-hlt" on the prompt when you boot the installer floppy or CD. If the installer does boot after that your motherboard/cpu/bios combination does not like the hlt instruction.

Reopen this bug if the drdisk solution does not work for you.

Yes, during install typing F5 linux no-hlt text worked, however adding no-hlt on the options line of the Lilo Configuration screen did not add append = "no-hlt" to /etc/lilo.conf (allowing the system would reboot with this option). Also manually editing lilo.conf and adding append = "no-hlt" did not work either. Using linuxconf, which wrote the exact same line worked. (kinda strange?) You may want to keep this in bugzilla as the above syntax is correct, some other references on the net are not. Thanks again, you all are great! GO RHAT!
