Okay. I had a little more time to check this out. My problem is
specifically with the SIS5513 chipset driver in the kernel. My
old/cheap motherboard does not like it. (Same problem with a Knoppix
CD). If I use "expert" mode of the Beta3 installer and disable loading
of the SIS5513 chipset it seems to work okay.
Anyway. It appears to have nothing to do with the installer program.
