Is there any special reason to use Redhat 9?. I mean, it's pretty old now, unsupported and you have a newer hardware. It will conflict with some stuff. Fedora is basically Redhat, so...

Hi again omnia!

Well, there's not much you can do, but, if I was you, I would start off by going to your Bios and disable one inbuilt thing (start with the network card) and try to install Linux. If it crashes, go to the Bios again, enable the network card, disable the sound and restart the installation.

It's tedious to do that, I know, but it's the only tip I have. I remember having a Intel motherboard with P4 processor and my computer would crash (kernel panic too) often. I found out that the reason for the crashes was the inbuilt network card. A very very cheap PCI card fixed this issue.

Good luck mate!

Set your BIOS to default.
