Interesting... I tried the installation several times and it always caused
the box to hang when I had it set to enhanced. I have a 40GB on the primary
IDE, CDRW, DVD on the secondary IDE and the 120GB on the first SATA. When in
enhanced mode I choose the SATA drive to be the first drive rather than the
PATA one. I wish I could find out what exactly is causing it to hang but it
sometimes hangs right after a message saying that it's disabling UDMA on my
CDRW (/dev/hdc) or sometimes it makes it as far as "Checking for new
hardware".

Once I get back home later this week I will mess around with it so more,
perhaps start removing other devices to see if that helps. Thanks for the
feedback, at least it gives me some hope :)

Eric
