RE: [SLE] Help! - Kernel panic during 7.3 install
Thanks - I tried to do that a little while
ago, but the machine hung at the install
menu screen (I couldn't make any choices).

Right now I'm formatting one of the SCSI
drives (getting a 'drive not ready' message).
When that is done, I'll try to boot w/
safe settings again.

Stay tuned......:)
