===>>> Thanks. Unfortunately, it didnt quite work. I booted from DVD with the 
installation DVD and booted as
rescue root=/dev/hda1
The rescue system appeared to boot, but the same screen appears and freezes...
===>>>I have also tried it with the newer netinstall

to boot: linux bootkbd=en_US did not help either.
