boot from cd locks

I am trying to install Debian 3 off of CD. My computer boots from the CD, and shows me a menu. I press return to go ahead and install Debian. The beer penguin appears and text starts to scroll up my screen. It gets to the section where it recognizes disks, and appears to lock up. This is what I get:

ide0 at 0x1f0-0x1f7,0x3f6 on irq 14
ide1 at 0x170-x177,0x376 on irq 15
hda: IBM-DTTA-351010, 9671MB w/466kB Cache, CHS=1232/255/63
hdc: ATAPI DVD-ROM drive, 384kB Cache
Uniform CD-ROM driver Revision: 3.11

And then there's a solid nonblinking cursor on the next line.

I've let it sit for several minutes.

Asus K7V Motherboard
Athlon 650mhz (slot A)
384MB PC100 memory
Diamond Viper 550 (TNT) video card
Netgear FA311 10/100 Ethernet card
Hollywood Plus MPEG decoder card

I appreciate any help yo can lend.
