I can't install Open Linux 2.2

When I boot my computer to install Open Linux 2.2, it starts to test my hardware and then when it displays the message "... start the lizard" the screen gets gray and the computer stops. Can anyone help me, please ?

MBSoft,
     I'm mklp and can probably help here. You can find the answer in Calderas Knowledge Base by searching "SiS". My guess is that you have an SiS video chipset, perhaps a 6326? Let me know if not. You can install via LISA with no problem and then create an XF86Config file using xf86config. You then edit the XF86Config per their instructions.
    Hold on, http://users.nf/linux/sis63261.htm

I just went to Calderas site and got this link for you. Wow! Hold on again,

     Whew!, I don't know what is up with Caldera but I just searched on the same search strings as I did when I had the problem and got the related but different responses above. Could just be me. Here is the one I was looking for:

     This affects other SiS cards as well, and LISA will work just fine. You may have to play with a couple of other xf86config video card selections as I did but eventually KDE will work.\
Hope this helps,
mklp
