I'm trying to install RH9 on an PC made of old bits based on a P133
and it seems to go fine, install the default server packages goes
through. Then I reboot so that it runs on what has just been
installed -it hangs.

Specifically it hangs immediately after displaying info about the
3 hard drives. I've tried using grub and lilo - both produced the
same behaviour. I don't know what it's trying to do so I've no idea
on where to start.
