Hey...anyone who can figure this one out...PLEASE feel free to email me...this is a brain digger...
...Anyways, I installed MANDRAKE 9.1 w/ all options and the install was a sucess no problems. Then I booted, tried all options just to get into the system and it freezes every single time at the init kernal. I tried a differ video card, tried pulling the sound card and so on. Nothing seems to work. I was leaning towerds hardware not allowing me to do so...but now I am open to any suggestions. The specs are below. And YES I have tried re-installing a few times now...
