hey guys

i'm still

I used to get the busybox problem (im on an Abit AB9, E6600, 2gb Ram, 1 500Gb SATA, 1 250Gb SATA), and "all_generic_ide floppy=off irqpoll" actually got ubuntu to load, but now it suddenly freezes.

just locks up, stops loading, and I can't move my mouse (PS2, as is the keyboard).

any idea why it would just stop?

cheers

EDIT: just thought I'd do another search on the forums, and found out about the write speed. I'll burn a new disk, see if that helps, and add acpi=off on the command line.
