Netware 5.x Installation Appears to Stall on Pentium 4-Based Computers Affected Products: Servers
Affected Operating Systems: Novell® NetWare®ISSUE: During the installation of Netware 5.x, the process appears to simply stop with no indication of a difficulty shortly after the graphical user interface (GUI) portion of the installation begins.

Pressing CTRL+ESC allows you to choose the system console option. You may note that the last successfully loaded module on the console is SYMCJIT.NLM, followed by a number of java and memory errors.
