Re: (very URGENT!) hung up on install



If you press any of the following, do your keyboard LEDs light up or
toggle:  caps-lock, num-lock, or scroll-lock?

If yes, you've got keyboard input, if not, you've got a hosed console.
Shut down, restart, and restart the installation.  Skip this particular
step if possible.
