Hello Doug, nice to meet you through email and thanks for your response
to my problem.

1. I do not know which version I was installing because I was entirely
led through by the installation disk image from which I booted up and
started my installing process.
2. The installing method was FTP transfer mode to download from a local
mirror site located in the University of Sydney (because I live in
Sydney).
3. I did not try ALT-F2. I am going to try the installation again
tonight and leave the process on overnight, and then check the result
tommorow morning, if hangs again I shall forward it to you immediately.

Finally thank you very much for you help.

David Wei
