I'm having some difficulty installing RH8. I thought you experts might be able to point me in the right direction. I've got a 1.2GHz Sony laptop with 512 meg of RAM and a 40 gig hard drive. I split the drive into three partitions, 35 megs for Windows XP Pro, 4.5 meg for RedHat and 0.5 for the swap.

The installation went great, but loading hasn't been quite so successful. The load hangs when it gets to "Bringing Up Loopback Interface". Can anyone recommend a course of action for me?

Hi blissmj,

I'm new to linux and to this forum as well. I have a similar problem to what you're having. I installed linux on a 2Ghz laptop with 512mb ram. Partitioned my disk accordingly using partition magic and proceeded to do the install.

Well whenever i boot up in linux, Everything checks out well until i hit Bringing up loopback interface where it just hangs. I tried letting it kinda return some kind of fail signal, but it really just sits there.

I have managed to get by it with some help from some friends, but it means you have to use the interactive mode each and everytime you boot up. Hit "Shift i" when it starts booting up. When you get to this stage select no. Select no for all other internet related options as well.

Otherwise someone with the technical expertise please help.
