Well, first thing I'd check is settings in your BIOS, since it's a setup problem with IRQs and whatnot. I really can't think of much else right now. You'll need to check and make sure that nothing's explicitly using IRQ10 or that you have some "funky" setting (sorry, I can't really define that word).
Here's a list of IRQs that I got from this site
IRQ0 timer tick
IRQ2 I/O channel
IRQ5 LPT2, network card, sound card
IRQ6 diskette controller
IRQ7 LPT1, network card, sound card
IRQ8 real-time clock
IRQ9 software redirected to IRQ2
IRQ13 math coprocessor
IRQ14 primary hard disk port
IRQ15 secondary hard disk port
I hope that gives some direction. Did you check the ISO images and everything when you download them? Or did you did a CD integrity test before installing?
