Since you mentioned that you heard a clicking sound when the system
froze up it sounds like a hard drive problem occurred which could have
corrupted a file system. Before re-installing try booting to the rescue
system (1st cd/dvd) and run fsck on the primary disk and see if any
problems are reported. fsck should fix them unless the disk has gone
