What distribution of linux are you trying to install (Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian, Suse, ... there are a lot of them)? Judging by the number it might be Debian 4.0. There's no such thing as linux 4.0.
What kind of disk is it? Is it IDA or SATA? I used to have problems installing some distributions on SATA. Can you try some other distro e.g. Ubuntu and see what happens...
