I am attempting to install CentOS-5.0 from CD-ROM onto an HPQ- DC7700 Dual
Core machine. The standard install seems to halt at, or immediately after,
this point in the setup process is displayed on the console:

<Enter> {default install option}
CPU1: Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 CPU 4300 @ 1.8GHz stepping 02
ACPI: Assume root bridge [\_sb_.pc10] bus is 0.

I would like to get this box running so any help with this is greatly
appreciated.  The reason for using CentOS-5.0 is because I do not which to
wait 30 some odd hours to download new ISO images.  The plan is to install
from 5.0 and upgrade to 5.2.

last point. I am a digest subscriber so the favour of a direct reply
(REPLY ALL) is requested.
