is NOT a PC/Mac
I have a PC with P4 1.86GHz (Overclocked to 2.25GHz), 1GB of RAM, Geforce 5200, AsRock Motherboard, 120GB PATA and DVD-RW drive. The problem is that when I try to install any kind of linux in the machine, I get ridiculous error messages everytime. Even last time with Ubuntu 7.04 (from the Digit DVD June 2007) I got stucked when installing the distro. The error messages are so big and many in numbers that I cannot write them in the post right now. I think this could be a IRQ problem and after looking at the POST screen I found that many devices such as USB controllers and lan controllers shares the same IRQ.
