slow installation on powerfull pc
I have a problem installing LINUX on my PC.
I start by booting from the cd and it's going extremly slow. For example, i had to wait 15 minutes until i could select the first installation option from debian and at the detecting hardware option it took him about 1 hour. The same problem with all the distro's - very slow throughout the installation sequence. I wasn't able to install any linux, because i had to wait for to much(after 7 hours from bootig with the installation cd of ubuntu for example)
I checked the bios and it has the right options selected, i benchamrked&tested all components to see if thei're ok - and they were.
Chaintech motherboard with NForce 4 ULTRA chipset, AMD 64bit 3000+ 939 processor, MAXTOR 200GB SATA HardDrive, 2 X 512 memory modules from KINGMAX.
I tried until now the folowing distros:
-UBUNTU 64BIT version
-ubuntu 32 BIT version
-fedora core 4
-Knoopix(don't remember what version)
could anybody help me on this? or if there is a problem with the distributions above, could anybody suggest another distribution that might work?

Did you try all kernel options at boot time?
