It may appear that to hang. On these older systems, you might want to
minimize what runs on startup.
I had a conversation about installing FC13 on an A22p and Robert "Doc"
Savage provided a hint. He stated to disable the Beagle system as it
tends to run forever.
Thank you for the ram hint however, I'll have to check and see how much
memory I have on my old A22p. It may just have the minimum to run a
graphical interface (384MB). I might be able to 'squeeze' a GB into it.
