ummmm basically with centos 4 or 5 64 bit, it is freezing when i get to the
partitioning and want to continue forward or after partitioning and moving
towards the ummmmm place where one chooses software.

4.7 seems to work better than 5.2

would not work in graphical install mode. hangs

so i went to

linux text

...and i am not using any kernel params *yet* other than one time i tried

nousb nousbstorage skipddc

just for the heck of it, which worked on old compaq DL380 servers hehehehe
;-)

what i will try next is to turn off power mgmt and apic or whatever

i was wondering if others had bought any of these boxes and played with them
yet. they are pretty cheap and i have been looking for some cheap rackmount
boxes that i can throw large ata ide drives in to do some things with
