Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2002-11-26 10:55:35 UTC
can you try 
linux mem=xxxM
as command on the very first screen (where xxx is 16Mbyte less than the amount
of memory you have)

Comment 2 marco 2002-11-26 11:17:38 UTC
I have 2GB Ram (2048Mb) so i try
linux mem=2032M and the result are:

install exited abormal -- received signal 11
Ctrl Alt F3

(just the last one)
#modules to insert ide-cd
Ctrl Alt F4

Comment 3 marco 2002-12-09 13:59:27 UTC
I have removed 1GB ram and now the RedHat 8.0 works perfect.
