ok. i start my computer with the linux slackware dvd inserted into the dvd-rom , it boots up i select a kernel (i have tryed with all 16 kernels and no results)

Hmmm ... the board seems to be well-known and well supported.
It's running other OSes fine?

Either each on their own or together. See what happens.
P.S.: I'm shuffling this thread over to our Slackware
