           I took your suggestion and ran memtest86 v1.70 from
ubuntu7.10alt cd. It went on
and on for a very long time. After Pass 2 I quit. Methinks memory might not
be the
problem. Before this I opened the cabinet and checked whether everything was
seated well. I don't think it is a memory problem because this problem is
only during booting.            Once I am into any of the three OS I can
keep on and nothing happens.
I was blaming Suse because of a partitioning problem I had with 9.1 when I
lost my data Fat partition and had to use testdisk to write a new partition
table to get it back. Bad week till I got everything back.
           I shall wait some before installing FC8 over FC7 and
Ubuntu7.10over Suse.
Thanks for your suggestion.
