Ubuntu on a Twinhead


So here is the deal, I have a Twinhead P02G that was running Windows 98 until my brother in law borrowed it. He filled it with virus' browsing the net adn it hasn't been the same since. It takes 40 minutes to boot up so now I am trying to install Ubuntu on the laptop. I get so far and then the screen blanks out and if I hit return I get some error message about hub 1-0:1.0 over-current change on port 2.
Any ideas?

I just picked up a TwinHead P02G (cheap!) and installed ZenWalk w/out a problem. You need to change the BIOS for 'Other' operating system on disk. Everything worked great execept the bottom portion of the screen (about 10%) has a horizontal row of garbage displayed. I'm working on fixing that, any ideas?
