Hello all this is my first post to this list so i would like to than you all in advance for your time and consideration.

I am in the process of building a new server and have purchased some used hardware.  There seems to be some hardware issuses and i am hoping nothing was damaged during shipping.  However i am in contact with intel and we are tring to figure out the exact problem via email.

So i have insalled centos 4 from the four CD set and have done all the updates through the GUI.  I must say a GUI in Linux land is nice have been working mostly on old FreeBSD boxes none of which have GUI installed. Anyways the above mentioned hardware is this 

INTEL SR2300 CHASSIS 
INTEL SE7500WV2 MAINBOARD
INTEL (DUAL) XEON P4 2GHZ CPU
HP 1G ECC RAM 
ADAPTEC 29160LP SCSI CONTROLLER
PROMISE FASTRAC SOMETHING OR OTHER has nothing attached to it anyhow.

I have four Seagate Cheetas 147G 10.6K SCSI harddrive most are firmware version 0006 (been meaning to update this to 00007 before i go to production)

HERE IS MY PROBLEM =======================================

When i boot up the machine i get this error off the getgo

PCI unable to handle 64bit address space for

==========================================================

Everything seems to work fine but i am woundering before i go any further should i be installing the 64bit version of Centos on this machine?  Is there a 64 version of Centos? anyways any help or advice on this matter is greatly apprciated.

ps if anyone is familiar with this mainboard and hardware setup i would love some insight as to the was the BIOS error event codes that this machine keeps spiting out at me mean.

Thank you in advance
