I previously installed the same OS on another server and did not have a problem.  On this server, which prior to the installation had Windows 2000, I unable to get past the prompt for the Setup, i.e., <Cntl><D>.  After this point it shows a "j" and hangs.
My only thought is to format the drive before installing the Linux OS, yet I have not seen the option to do so.
What then might the problem be and what then might the solution be?

It is the 4th and the point are up high!

I was able to determine that it is a memory problem.  This is strang because it priviously had Windows 2000, although I am installing "EVERYTHING" from Linux.  I tried increasing the memory via Setup, but I am unable to do so.  I guess my other option is to get a bigger drive.  Yet it had windows, which I would think is bigger or just as big.
Any comments?

Hi,

Did you create a swap partition double the size of your current memory?

xDamox, I had installed this OS in other servers, and in those I did not create a swap partition.  I have since then, solved my problem, although I do not know what was the cause of the problem and actually I do not know what the solution was.  Yet it no longer hangs.
What I would like to do is wait to see if anyone else tries to answer this question, before I explain what I did.

XDamox, your response was not an adequate answer, so I am hesitent to give you all of the points.  I am hoping that others would add to this question.  Is this question able to be seen by others?
