Installation - Hitting a brick wall


Red Hat 9 installation probs - PCI cache line size ( post #1)

Anyone know how to work round this one?

I am trying to install red hat 9

It always freezes on this message

PCI: 00:03.2 PCI cache line size set incorrectly (32 bytes) by BIOS/FW
PCI: 00:03.2 cache line size too large - expecting 16

I have trawled everywhere I could find and nowhere explains it.

The closest was here and the reply was to turn off PnP in the bios, that didn't work either......

I have tried changing many things in the BIOS.
I even stripped out all the PCI cards, took the system down to the bare minimum...........
Athlon 2400+
768 pc2100 ram
2 gig hd
NVIDIA GeForce FX5200 graphix
LG HL-DT-ST CD-RW GCE8400B

Still I get to this point

PCI: 00:03.2 PCI cache line size set incorrectly (32 bytes) by BIOS/FW
PCI: 00:03.2 cache line size too large - expecting 16

What does this error message mean?
