    Hi All,

    I have read about everything I could and couldn't find... how long should it take to install?

    2X 3gig Xeon 2mL2 cache 64 bit, 8G ddr2, 2 500G HD. Planted in a datacenter, connected via remote SSH.

    I left the room, had to eat dinner. It had been kerchunking away for almost an hour. Now I have a vertical row of 8 dots EA, a whole row of them and the prompt has stopped. Should I wait longer or start checking things? I don't want to interrupt a natural process.

    Yes I know there is a free install service but the directions are simple and crystal clear. It was doing just fine and normal when I left the room.


    Thank you in advance :) I hope I don't have to yank it and reinstall the OS. (bare bones centos5)

    The installation still going after an hour is normal. Usually takes 60-90 minutes on good hardware with good connectivity. If it is still going after 2 hours and I know I have good connectivity, that's when I'd start to become concerned.
