What's your hardware, More specific, Raid/SCSI interface. I have a DELL 
2850 and the 4.2.1 Mega raid driver in "hardware" RAID 0 will lockup 
every single time anaconda tries to setup the hard drives just prior to 
loading. I tried changing the bios to scsi mode from raid and that 
allowed me to get the os loaded.... But it will only last 5 seconds 
after logon. It dropped both of my processors with a 07f0 error. Not 
having the time to dig deeper. I (thank you, thank you, thank you, thank 
you, Eric Harrison) downloaded centos4 with ltsp included.

   rsync -Pav k12linux.mesd.k12.or.us::K12LTSP-EL/* .

-Eric "

 I rsynced the disks I already had, did a nfs install and 12 minutes 
later I'm off and running.
Almost forgot, I left centos 4 running in the machine over the weekend 
to see if any problems arose and they did not.
