Importance: High


While trying to install Suse Linux using a boot floppy disk, the
installation process seems to hang while trying to load kernel profiles (46%
complete). It prompts for an insert of the module1 disk but does not respond
to the key press. I did wait for about 20 mins in case the process was
timeconsuming. I have an XP installed on a Pentium 4. The installation
instructions seem to assume that the installation process will allow the
installer to type
linux install= at the boot prompt.

The installation does not seem to be interrruptible and Im not sure if that
is an issue. In either case any help would be greatly appreciated.
