[CentOS] Can't install CentOS4

Hi everyone,

My email server is running CentOS 3 and I can't upgrade it to CentOS 4 
using the CD's.  At first I thought it was the old Megaraid card (that's 
no longer supported), so I replaced that with a new card.  I've tried 
ISO's from CentOS 4, 4.1 and now 4.2 which I've tested and booted in 
other machines.  Just not this one.

I've never had a problem like this before so I'm not sure what 
information you need to help me debug this.  The server stops right 
after the line about detecting the AGP video.

I have tried booting with noprobe and some other kernel options but 
nothing seems to work.  Please let me know what else I can try to get it 
to boot.

Thanks,
Ajay
