I also am having this problem. I have installed FC 2 and Mandrake 9.2 before with these discs (on another computer) but they wont boot up on the machine I just built. I have tried Mandrake 9.2, 10.0, and FC 2 and they all lock up at the same place. Where it loads the kernels. Could this have to do with my MoBo - Asus A8V Deluxe?

What do you mean no acpi? You just say "vgahi noacpi " at the prompt?
