I recently was able to install Vector Linux standard GOLD 5.9 (thanks to some previous help on this forum), but it seems I've run into another problem.

Lilo comes up fine, and the system appears to boot normally, but once the "Performing Coldplugging" stage is reached, the computer does not advance.  The Hard Drive has a little bit of activity, but after 6 hours overnight there was still no advancement.  Is there something I may be overlooking in booting the OS?

Edit:  It turns out that the problem was that Vector Linux doesn't seem to like my sound card or NIC.  I got it booted up finally, and it runs well, though I don't have sound or internet.  Thanks for the patience, though Smiley.

I wish I had seen this earlier.  I guess I wasn't paying close enough attention.

Cracked, I'm curious.  Do your networking and sound cards work with any other operating system?  Specifically, have you tried them with a different Linux distribution?  It would be odd if they both went bad at the same time, but could this be a hardware problem?
