I, too, would like to find an answer to the above problem.  A search on
dejanews locates hundreds of messages similar to this one, but no answers
(unless you're running an Athalon...the answer is then upgrade to frozen).  I
have an old 486 that I'd like to install Debian 2.1 or 2.2 on, but I get the
same hang every time.  I can install RedHat, Mandrake, SuSE and Slackware, but
not Debian.

Any ideas?
