update # 1.....
wellllllllllllll....it seems that it didn't REALLY hang up....it's just really, really sloooooooooooooooooooooooooooow !!!
for instance....it got as far as asking what device to install to....then appeared to be doing nothing...but 19
minutes later it finally found my HDD & usb stick.....I told it to install to my HDD of course...I waited over 1
hour with no results, so I went to do my grocery shopping....I returned about 2 hours later & found it waiting
to be told what partition to install in....it is now back to the "finding storage devices" screen.....I guess I will
have to wait another 2-3 hours for it to finish searching....I assume it is looking at each partition on my HDD
searching for free space....I have a 30GB partition reserved already....
after it FINALLY finishes the install, I certainly HOPE it will run as fast as Ubuntu or Mint...or it's going to
the trash !!!
my PC is not bleeding edge by any means, but it's not that bad either....specs follow:
CPU AMD K8 ATHLON DUAL CORE @ 2.1 GHz
2 GB 666MHz MEMORY
250GB HDD @ 7200RPM
NVIDIA GEFORCE 6150 GPU
