I am trying to install RHL6.1 on a laptop that is built by my company and having limited success. The software is downloaded and burned from red hat - not bought. The machine has a 2 GB HDD and 32 MB of RAM with a 200Mhz Pentium. I am attempting a normal install.
The first odd thing is that when I am configuring the video the software can auto detect my video card and I then have to manually choose LCD 800X600. After a long install I reboot and get nothing but random colors on the screen. I have tried several different combnations of screens but to no avail.
The second odd error I get is after I see those many odd colors I reboot and see that the machine is scrolling boot text. After it tries to detect new harware, it scrolls seemingly random hex numbers all over the screen. Here is one example of the text: [<c2890c40>]. After about five minutes of this, the numbers stop and the system is frozen.
I put all of these oddidties in the same question because I believe they are related. If y'all think that they are separate issues, let me know and I will split them up. Thank you.
