[svlug] Problem installing Slackware...

    I figured I'd give Slackware a try, so I nabbed the ISO, did the toasty
toast to a piece of plastic, and opened the cup holder.  I booted the
laptop, watched the POST go by and waited... And waited... Then the thing
reboots and does it all over.  Puzzled I tried a RedHat 7.2 CD, SYSLINUX
would boot, but the kernel fails.  So I gave a RedHat 5.0 disk a whirl, same
as 7.2.

    Any ideas?  Laptop is pretty old, P233 with 96megs.
