I have IBM thinkpad 570. 366Mhz, 128MB, xircom realport pcmcia nic.
1. when the installation start, the switch to frame buffer sometimes
stuck with white screen - deadlock, just before asking for language.
2. when the installation succeed, when it boots for the first time, it
hangs in some ways:
a. after founding reiserfs 3.6
b. in the init script of ext2 and ext3 probing
