Hi All,

My comp is 450 MHz celeron, 256 MB, 5 GB hdd i810.
The PcLinux live cd doesnt login to GUI.
A blank screen appears with hourglass mouse and the
screen is blank. Even after 1/2 an hour, the state is
same.
Ctrl + Atl + F1 take me to new console.
After entering login as root, the password prompt
doesnt appear. The machine just hangs at the username.
Giving username as guest also results in same case.

Pl help.

~A.
