Athlon64X2 + Xpress 200 Upgrade equates to Uplate

Replacing an honourable Athlon XP (may its ashes rest in peace)

I installed Mandriva 2006 X86_64 on my new beast with a few hiccups.

First for some bizarre reason the Kernel on the install disc doesnt boot past IDE and SATA controllers unless
# noapic
is passed to the kernel like so
# linux noapic

that isnt a big deal however whenever noapic is passed...
