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.
