I tried this next and experienced an almost identical freeze. The
alternate install CD actually has a small graphical interface that
asks if you want to do a text install. When I choose text install, it
switches to a blank screen and freezes.

I suspected there was a method like this, but I'm an end user not a
system admin. I'm not sure how to do this.
