thank you, but it still hangs
Hi, thank you for your suggestions. I reinstalled Linux and set the driver as geforce 2 generic (custom installation with everything, and I set graphic mode as the default mode). This did not help the situation, though :-( it still hangs after "start firstboot" was displayed. I really want to make it work. Do you have any other suggestions. Maybe after several tries I will install Fedora instead. Thanks a lot ...
