[CentOS] Installation problems on old IBM server

I'm trying to install CentOS 4.2 on an old IBM x300 server, but it hangs 
during the boot from cd. The last entries I can see before it dies are the 
two "agpgart" lines. I've been playing around with bios settings (video 
settings and serial settings since the serial driver is the next thing 
going on in the kernel) and boot params (noapic, acpi=off etc) but I just 
can't get this thing up and running. It's been working like a charm (and 
still does) with CentOS 3.

Any tips?
