This is what I sought too, but when I tried to boot it from the
install CD it returned to the console executing a halt instruction.

Looking thru my notebooks this might be related to some hardware
compatibility problem and maybe possibly related to a problem
with the graphics card or the motherboard. I am running my system
using the Diamond Stealth Trio 64 S3 PCI which works fine under WinNT
and Digital Unix...
