Fedora 5 x86 64 bit Crash/hang

I am having many problem with the new installation of Fedora in my machine. The details are given below.

Distribution: Fedora (Fedora Core 5 x86_64bit - DVD)
Processor: AMD 64 Bit Athlelon (x86 Family 15 Model 4 Stepping 10 AuthenticAMD ~1804 Mhz)
Motherboard: ASUS
Internal NIC

The installation went through fine. But I am facing many problems.
1. Boot: Kudzu reports "Segmentation Fault 1340 Line 23 /sbin/kudzu ...."
2. Even though DHCP is enabled it nevers detects the IP (not possible to browse internet)
3. Start firefox it crashes randomly.
4. The whole Desktop hangs and I am forced to hard-reboot the machine.

I am having Windows XP Prof. also insalled in the same machine. There are no hardware issues reported by Windows XP.

I am not very particular about any distribution.
Can anyone suggest some good distribution for the above said H/W configuration?

Yours truly
Renjith V.

Did you check your CDs ? Did you correctly burned CDs?

Dont waste your time on this. just use other versions or distribution. you can not do any thing about this kind of problems.
Ubuntu is good, fedora 4 is really better than 5 right now.

1. I got a DVD. The media check during installation says that everything is okay.
2. Can you please suggest which distribution supports SATA drive? Does the latest Ubuntu support SATA?
3. My primary aim is to make my Linux installation capable od doing the daily stuff, browsing, some documents, text files, USB readers, CD writing etc.

if you use any distribution with kernel 2.6 you wont have any problem with SATA. If you have access to high speed internet connection use Ubuntu. You just need to spebd about an hour to find out what packages you need and download and install them using package manager. if you dont have high speed connection use suse.

I have also faced a lot of problems with SATA, even though I am using a 2.6.9 kernel with SATA support compiled in.

FreeBSD seems to handle SATA really well, however, I wouldn't consider it one of the more user friendly distros.
