Hi,
Thanks a lot for the inputs.

But, still I have too many problems.
I am not able to find acpi on BIOS settings.

I am trying on the system with the config:
It is Intel Dual Core and SATA hard disk.
I have Win 2003 Server already installed. But, the GRUB loaded detected it and even i could log into 2003 successfully.

I tried to boot in interactive mode:
Please find the services and the messages when I tried interactive mode:

Start Service CPU speed (Y)
FATAL: Error inserting acpi-cpufreq (/lib/modules/2.6.18-1.2798.fc6/kernel/arch/i386/kernel/cpu/cpufreq/acpi-cpufeq.ko) : No such device
Rest all fine.. then..
Determining IP information for eth0.. failed [FAILED]
then..

Start Service rpcidmapd [FAILED]
Start Service message bus [FAILED]
then..
Start Service bluetooth (Y)
touch: cannot touch: '/var/lock/subsys/hcid' : read-only file system,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

then all services failed ..only Starting Console mouse Services [OK]

Starting crond [FAILED]
then

blank screen appeared.


Kindly let me know, what should be done?
Can I use any other disto of linux on SATA ? But, I do not have 2 hard disks. I just have to install in one along with Win 2003 Server.

Please let me know.

Thanks & Regards,
Venkat
