    Failure of Fedora core 5 installation

    When i am doing the media test of FC5 1st cd it shows:

    BUG:spinlock recursion on cpu#0,swapper/0(not tainted) lock:c0350fa0, .magic:dead4ead, .owner:swapper/0, .owner_cpu:0

    If i skip the test then after few secs a blank screen will be displayed and at this stage my system doesnt respond so i have to restart the system.

    When i am installing FC4 1st cd it shows(even if skip media test):

    kernal panic- not syncing: drivers/ide/pci/atiixp.c : 129:spin_lock(drivers/ide/ide.c:c03de66 already locked by drivers /ide/ide-iops.c/1235 (not tainted)
    this problem of FC4 is not solved even if i use "linux dcpi=off" at the "BOOT:" prompt. but this is solved if i use "linux ide=nodma" and the installation for FC4 begins.

    When i am installing PCQ LINUX 2006 1st cd every thing goes fine and my system hangs on displaying "READING PACKAGE INFORMATION..." on the screen.
    I have to restart my system.

    When i am installing SOLARIS 10 the following things happen:
    Running cofiguration Assistant...
    error: 64 bit len unsupported
    The root filesystem is not mounted and the cofiguration assistant has exited prematurely.

    Booting is unlikely to succeed. ctrl-alt-del may be used to reset the machine.
    Failover to boot interpreter - type ctrl-d to resume boot
    ( when i press ctrl-d )
    cannot load drivers for
    (can't load the root file system)
    press any key to reboot.

    My computer configuration is:
    P4 3.06 GHz cpu
    1 GB ram
    intel D101 mother board
    PATA hard disk
    Sony DVD Writer

    Did you ever find a solution to this? I have tried the mediacheck and text and both of those get the same message. I'm doing this in Fedora 6 but get the same error message.
