i will wait to make sure you had 100% perfect install media, before
and, ask any other readers here to comment on the potential RAID

ok, when that green screen is up it is covering what is really going
on, so as soon as you see it hit Esc and the green fluff goes away and
you can watch the boot activity…
i suppose eventually every thing will stop: what is the last thing you
can read on the screen?

do you see exactly the same thing if you try the “Fail Safe” boot option?
and, have you checked the ram? that is, boot from the install DVD and
select the “Memory Test” and let it run at least 12 hours…

you may have a faster route to happiness if someone there can help
if you have a local person who knows how to use the install disk to
drop to run level three and inspect /var/log/messages we might very
soon know what the real problem is…
by the way, KDE is unnecessary fluff on a server…certainly, when
you get apache and mysql rolling you won’t need to have X running and
eating cycles and making heat…
