Installed 9.04 on my desktop, seemed to work fine. Restarted it and it froze at the login screen. Tried it a couple more times and now it freezes at the spinning cirsor. Its a Compaq with a pentium 4, it should work, 1.24GB RAM
Tried this page which the person had the almost the same problem as i do, followed the instructions, no go.
Also sometimes I get up to the first drumbeat sound, sometimes just the spinning cursor, sometimes a black screen with a white password box.
EDIT: Tried updating to kernal 220.127.116.11, no go
