Booted up on old version of knoppix (5.0) ok, it looked like there were some odd things going on but it still booted. Obtained some data logs from the lspci and dmseg command if needed.
I have booted an earlier version on ubuntu on an old 933 p3 with no probs so as a newbie i'm kind of stuck.
Any help in resolving this issue would be appreciated.
