heres one that catches a lot of people - after the install on the first
reboot it freezes when trying to configure the device drivers. The problem is
PS/2 mouse support on some mothrboards - if you aren't using the PS/2 mouse
then you may need to disable it. Boot single user with -s, then go into
/usr/Devices/System.config and remove the PS2Mouse from the list of active
drivers in the tables you find there. Then use /etc/reboot and continue.
(to remove the PS2Mouse from the active drivers, use vi or specify an
alternate list when booting as a boot command line option)
This bugs been around years - but it seems very few people know how to fix
the damn thing !
