I am trying to load the 0801 2.2 snap onto a DELL optiplex and
I am not having much luck :-(

The install seems to be working and the CD is recognized
but it has never made it thru even the first bin.?? stuff.

It has made it as far as 80% and as little as 10% before the
CD seems to lockup.  The shell reports that the drive is
not responding and it definitely appears locked because even
the eject buttons does not work.

Selecting retry is not successful but the install program
keeps trying (sure is a lot more robust than it used to be :-) )
It says something about the device not responding.
I know, you think after seeing it a dozen times I would know
exactly but its late :-)

anyone have any hints??? anyone load an optiplex successfully?

DELL optiplex, pentium 166, 16Meg memory
1GIG ide port 1
ATAPI CD on IDE port 2,
no slaves on either port

Thanks for any help
