[CentOS] Not able to install Centos 4.2

Hi All,

Yes, the dump was taken from VMWare. I did not want to reboot. So I used a
ubuntu live cd to get that info.

Later, I retried installing CentOS 4.2. I opted yes when I was shown this
message:

"No hard drives have been found. You probably need to  manually choose
device drivers for the installation to succeed. Would you  like to select
drivers now?"

And then tried one at a time. One of them worked! I was delighted. The
installation went on perfectly. No issues at all. But when I attempted to
boot into CentOS, there was an issue. The machine hung.

This was the sequence:
*.*
Setting Network parameters ------------ [OK]
Bringing up lookback interface --------

At this point system hangs. Keyboard & mouse do not respond. Control Alt Del
does not work. Monitor which was good until this time, starts showing
"granules"...

I tried again after turning off router. (I have a broad band connection from
Tata Indicom). But it stuck again while "Bringing up loopback interface"

Please help me boot CentOS.

Regards,
Ravi.
