Just a question, is it possible that your computer doesn't support as much RAM?
Some weeks ago I managed to install Slackware on an old Celeron-Machine, I inserted 3x256MB and after the installation the computer did not work (no network). I reduced the RAM to 2x256MB and the computer worked again. In my experience these old machines often are limited even to 3x128MB of RAM. Sometimes if they have to much of RAM they seem to work but after some time there are things going wrong. Long story short, maybe your mainboard cannot handle 1.5GB of RAM, try it with less RAM....
Well, referring to this: http://www.tyan.com/archive/products...rinity400.html
it supports a maximum of 768MB.
