Hi,

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=ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/8.1 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.

Regards,
Manoj.
