Additional info:

Computer config: 
1. P2-233, MB-Asus P2L97, Ram-128Mb, Hdd-Seagate ST34572N 4.3Gb, Video-S3 Trio 3d AGP 4Mb.
2. Cel-533, MB-Asus CUBX-E, Ram-128Mb, Hdd-IBM DLTA-307045 40Gb, Video-S3 Trio 3d AGP 4Mb.
Now computers work under RedHat 7.3

I tried Eng/Rus laguage, upgrade and new installation, server and decktop, automatic and manual partition setting.
The result is same.
