Athlon64X2 + Xpress 200 Upgrade equates to Uplate

Posted 12-15-2005 at 04:06 AM by carl0ski

I Recently ploped down the cash on a MS-RS482M4 to accomidate a Athlon 64 X2.
Replacing an honourable Athlon XP (may its ashes rest in peace)

I installed Mandriva 2006 X86_64 on my new beast with a few hiccups.

First for some bizarre reason the Kernel on the install disc doesnt boot past IDE and SATA controllers unless
