I have changed the memory and this resolved the problem.
Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2003-09-23 17:06:43 EDT
How much memory did you have before, and what did you change it to?
Comment 4 domedome 2003-09-23 23:36:45 EDT
I was having 32Mb of edo memory on 4 simm.  I have removed 2 simmm (32Mb
remaining). And after having removed those memory simms the installation gave me
no error and work very well.

After the installation I have reinstalled the memory and everything seems to be
normal.  I know the motherboard is cheap and have a bad reputation on stability,
I think it could be an answer of the problem. I have tried to install redhat
7.3, 8.0 and 9.0 and no one were able to be installed.

Good luck glad to hear you found a way to get it working.
