CD checksum and disk have been verified. System P4 -3Gig - 4Gb Memory - 160Gb Hard drive- Intel 845g MoBo - ATI all-In-Wonder 9800 Series. Clean install with full disk format.
One third (1/3) through the install (based on the progress bar) total system lockup (ie: keyboard and mouse). This is repeatable. I have tried 4 times. I then tried booting to the Live CD then trying an install through the icon on the desktop. . . same result.
