For a technical editing job, I’ve been trying to install the latest “alpha” release of Red Hat Linux 10.0, without any luck. First I tried installing it into a VMware partition within Windows XP, but it failed on reading the second CDROM during the install. Then I scrounged up a spare 20GB disk, hooked it up to my PC and installed the OS onto that. Seemed like it worked great, but when I boot the system up it freezes immediately after the message "Enabling ACPITIMER based gettimeofday()" which effectively prevents me from using it at all. Most frustrating!!
