i have an old windows 98 machine on which i am trying to install linux without success. the machine has an asus a7v motherboard, an amd athlon 900mhz processor and 640m of pc133 sdram. when i try to install redhat it fails almost immediately when it attempts to boot the kernel and the machine restarts. the last debug message it displays is 'calibrating the delay loop'. i have tried using the noprobe and skipddc options without any success. i have also tried fedora core and this fails also at a similar place. for both the redhat and fedora installs i have burnt the iso's to cd and am booting the machine from the cd. can anyone help???
