Ubuntu/Kubuntu ???

I downloaded Ubuntu 5.04 or whatever, and so did my cousin, my cousin installed it on 2 computers, one 500 mhz celeron, and one 1.8 ghz pentium 4, they both ran great and really fast and stable.

However, for me the case is different.

I have an AMD 64 3000+, downloaded the amd64 version of ubuntu, and I did the first part of the install with success.

On the second part, it did everything OK, until it started downloading, openoffice-thesaurus.deb, It crashes at 46% and cuts the power for no reason.
You may ask "what happens when I reboot and try again?" when I try again, there is a kernel panic, that says something not in sync, aieee, then that's basically it.

I tried 4 times (Because I hear it's so great) and it crashed every time, I formatted as reiserfs, and ext3 a few times, I am not overclocked (I was, but i turned it off after first attempt) I am not overheating (31 degrees celsius)

I am running socket 754, gigabyte ga-k8ns pro, nvidia geforce fx5500, 768 mb pc2800 ddr ram, 120 gb Maxtor (blah) ide hdd.

I am getting quite frustrated, and assumed there was no solution, I was planning on downloading kde with apt in ubuntu anyway, so i stumbled across kubuntu, which is currently downloading on my machine now, I am in hope that this will work without any error.

Any suggestions? Or similar problems?


I am quite experienced, so you don't need to be very clear in your explanations, unless debian is much different than gentoo 64 stage1, which is what I previously ran, but decided to stop, when finding this very fast, reliable (*cough*to some people*cough*), I love debian, I used to run it on my old machine, and it was lightning quick, but I love the ubuntu package manager, it is just amazing what they did to debians original apt, I think it may be close to competing with portage (gentoo's pkg manager)
