I'm booted from the CD, and I'm on a 2ghz Celeron processor with a 160gb HDD. I'm asking because the installer is hanging at the "Preparing to Install:For Best Results" screen for what seems to be an inappropriate period of time when I click the "forward" button. I'm impatient, but unsure if this is typical for the installation process.
EDIT: While the display doesn't show any activity, besides keeping the window active, and spinning the loading cursor, the window seems to be dead. It spins the CD drive every now and then, but I can't tell if that's just a product of the OS operating in the background, or if it's installing.
