Nice to meet you through email and thanks for your help.

I first downloaded an boot image disk, then used it to boot up to the
installation manu.

It was FTP mode installation that downloads from a mirror site in
Australia. It is a local site nearest to me because I am in Sydney, not
in Korea.

I tried many times and it always hung up after a while, for example
after 5mb data transferring or 10mb, or more or less. When I tried to
quit, it asked if I really want to discard the installation process.

Once I left the computer connection overnight, but it stayed at the same
point with no change.

Could you give me some suggestions.
