Thank you for the response.

The machine hangs for as long as I let it go (up to an hour).

I'm trying to install 6.3 into Virtual PC on an XP Pro host.  It =
emulates a
floppy, and that cannot be disabled, even if I remove the physical =
drive.  Virtual PC is difference than Virtual Server (referenced in PR
kern/91476).  I haven't tried installing 6.3 into Virtual Server.

I have to plead ignorance on how and where to set variables when booting
from a CD (attempting install).  If I wanted to rebuild the kernel as =
in PR kern/91476, I'd have to do so in 6.2.  Would I download the 6.3 =
from 6.2, rebuild and install in that environment?

How long does the machine hang for?  Have you tried waiting say 10
minutes?  I suspect you are seeing the same problem as is in=20
PR kern/91476.  Can you try disabling the floppy controller from the
loader with
set hint.fdc.0.disabled=3D"1"
and seeing if that makes any difference?
