I couldn't install redhat 7.3 on a Toshiba laptop because the install 
program would freeze when the processor temperature state changed 
causing the fan to start, I assumed it was some interaction between the 
particular CPU (AMD K6) and the install program and the way temperature 
was handled by the laptop hardware. In that case SuSE installed fine.
