Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Distribution: Fedora 12, Arch Linux (updated daily =D)
I had the same problem installing Ubuntu 8.10. The problem was the disc was faulty. Verify your disc or try burning another. I've heard there are problems with disc verification on Fedora, so the latter might be better. They've got a Fedora 11 now, so why are you installing 10? (just curious - installing 10's just fine if that's what you want to do )
Have you tried installing in text mode? My experience has been that many of the times a system will lock-up are due to an X Server issue somewhere. If so, installing in text mode will get around that.
Also - how long are you letting Anaconda do it's hardware probe? Sometimes that can take longer than it seems it should, particularly with an older MB like you have.
One of my systems is a K9MM-V using the same chipset - except it usesa Socket AM2 processor instead of the Socket 754 the K8 uses - so I don't think it's an obsolete hardware issue.
