Laptop Problem?

After Linux is installed and the kernal begins to boot, it verifies everything and then loads the rpm and then starts to scroll numers that look like memory addresses by at a constant rate!  Please help! I am running a P75 Acer 590 Notebook with 16Mb of ram.

I have a laptop which I eventually got to work. I also had the same situation which I traced to files I chose not to install plus a wrong configuration. Try installing again don't be to conservative with files installed. If you still have problems, let me know, send details of the linux product ie Red Hat etc and what you installed and how you configured it. It is probably to long a list to write here. send me a email to
