I'm still trying to install 0.9.2 on a C180, too.

My expirence is that the DINO I/O chip seems to be the key 
element for that problem. Version 1.x of this chip crashes the 
system like you describe it (crash during boot ... :-( ) My 
DINO version (2.1) allows at least boot the system but the 
system crashes when I try to do the next steps within the 
installation procedure.

One tip i got in this mailing list was to try to install over 
network / NFS.

My problem at present is that the TP port of my C180 box seems 
to be broken, because i can't get a connection to my Intel 
Linux box. I tried to use either 100 Mbps as well as 10 Mbps on 
my Intel Linux box. The AUI-Ethernet port I can't test because 
I've not glue box from my Intel Linux TP ethernet adaptor to 
the AUI ethernet port of my C180 ...

Anybody outthere with an idea in this area ?

Thanks a lot !
