The correct model pf the mainboard is KT266PRO, not k7t266pro
Comment 2 Brent Fox 2001-11-05 23:56:25 EST
Try booting the installer with 'linux noathlon'.  Does that help?
Comment 3 Mircea Stoicescu 2001-11-07 07:18:26 EST
Tried "linux noathlon" before posting the first time. Unsuccessful.
Comment 4 Brent Fox 2001-11-08 10:11:51 EST
Hmm...is there any kind of debug message displayed by the installer?  

Also, did you verify the md5sums of the ISOs before using them?
Comment 5 Mircea Stoicescu 2001-11-12 02:47:22 EST
I didn't check the md5sums . I guess this is the real problem. My apologies for 
the inconvenience. Thal You!
