My machine uses RH9 in text mode just fine. It shouldn't hang over when trying to load the instalation program. This doesn't look like a problem with the refresh rate. it will load the RH7.2 instalation program just fine, so has anything changed in the begining instalation program since then? please post back with a reply.
P.S. By the way, my computers processor is a Syrix3 550mhz, If that helps.
Please close this Topic. I have found out my answer. apparently, it was my processor. FC2 doesn't seem to work on it. They say it's some type of bug. anyway, I am now installing FC3 and it is working just fine.
