Have you followed the instructions in our installation HOWTO? It sounds
like you have not.

You're probably bumping into firstboot. The only answer is to boot into
single user mode--or get sighted assistance.

The lack of output during the boot is the rhgb=quiet setting in
grub.conf. It's OK to delete that directive.

If Linux can't solve your computing problem, you need a different problem.
