    Default Installation freeze

    So I'm taking an Internet security course, and we need to have linux running. I've got the Backtrack 4 live cd burned and ready to go. Just got a toshiba 750 GB external partitioned into two parts. One is NTFS with 500 gb, and the other is FAT32 200GB. I was going to install Back track on the 200GB but every time I double click the install.sh file on the desktop it freezes at step 3, usually 50% into starting up the partitioner (scanning disks...).

    Any ideas what I should do?

    Thanks,

    -Jake

    Is using the R1? Verified the MD5 of the iso? Strange hang well.
    Format the partition with 200GB. Leave without file system and try running the installer again.
