okay after a little searching I found this http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...05/02/2/288101
which looks like it may be a similar problem to what I am getting. So my question is now going to become three questions:
1. Does anyone know if the LE2005 x86_64 release of mandriva has a kernel that supports my nVidia Nforce4?
2. If not, is there a Kernel that does support the Asus A8N-E Mobo?
3. Without using a floppy (yes, I didn't bother buying one for this new set up. Who'd have thought that I'd still need one?) is there any way to replace the kernel on the CD1 ISO? I can't compile a new kernel without somewhere to compile it.
