I have an AMD Athlon 64 3000+; MB ASUS A8N-SLI; 512 DDR
Video Card ASUS GeForce 6600 256 MB; SATA HDD Excelstor 80GB,
I am running presently Windows XP but would like to dual boot and use Mandriva as well. My problem is that when I try to install Mandriva the PC halts, stalls, starts "hanging" just after the license
agreement...The screen shows "installing Hard drive driver" or something like this concerning the hard drive....
Is it possible that there is no drivers for this type of HDD???

It's a regular drive.....
Do I have to set it up through the RAID configuration to install Mandriva? I am not familiar with configuring RAID....

It is possible that the version of Mandriva you have just doesn't like your harddrive controller (which is likely given Mandriva's bad support of Nvidia chipsets in my experience). What version of Mandriva do you have, by the way?

Mandriva 2005 LE....but I also tried to install an earlier version with the same result and Red Hat Linux and all the time there is only errors
during the install!
Is this PC exclusively for Windows?
I tried as well to manually start installing with the command
Red Hat v9.0

Is there some distro that there is a chance to support this motherboard of mine? Can you recommend me one?

OK! Thank you, techieMoe! I'll try CentOS....I saw that there is an x86_64 version of this OS, maybe it's worth trying!
