Does anyone know if the athlon xp has a problem with linux?
I have been trying to setup redhat 9 at home because I was impressed with the way it ran at work, however, I go through the graphical setup but it always seizes once it starts copying the os files.
I know that lg cdroms don't like linux, my colleagues and I discovered that the hard way, I have bypassed that by using my cdr as the master cd drive, but I still get the same problem. So my next thought was that my processor was being a sod. Here is a list of my other essential hardware as best as I can remeber.

athlon xp 1800+
gigabyte GA7D-XE motherboard
maxtor 40 gig hardrive
nvidia geforce 2 graphics card

I'm pretty sure I need a new processor, but any advice would be greatly appreciated

tried lowres and text, both with the same result, once the transfer of the os files begins, it says there is an error and the system reboots, I'd say what error but it only flashed quickly on the screen before rebooting, one of the annoyances of having a fast computer...

If someone could explain how to do the fedora core 1 install I would appreciate it.

Then if that doesn't work looks like if I want linux then it'll cost me the price of a new motherboard. :(
