Setup Failure on Install

okay, I started installing Linux onto a brand new hard drive (2.4 gb) on a K6-2 450Mhz 64mb ram, and everything goes fine, (partions, everything), till I get to choosing the different items for installation. That goes good, but the actual installation process causes my computer to randomly restart whenever it reaches a certain number! Please tell me this is a bug and not my computer, thank you :)

If this is before version 6.0 of the retail packages then yes it is a bug, you'll need to get a copy of version 6 or higher with Redhat based models.  Another thing to check is the chipset on the motherboard, I've been told that Linux doesn't have great support for Via chipsets

Go to Http://www.kernel.org (I believe that's the website), and get the latest stable kernel.  I believe you have Kernel 2.5 and there have been several releases since this one.  Recompile the lastest version and you should be set.
