fedora installation problems, possibly due to asus p5qpl-am motherboard

Hi all,

Having a problem installing Fedora after replacing motherboard and CPU.
These are the new parts:

Celeron D430 1.8 Ghz
asus p5qpl-am motherboard
elixir 2 Gb ddr2 ram

Ubuntu 6 and 8, opensuse 11, simplymepis 3 and windows xp all install without a problem but I have been unable to install any of Fedora 4, 5, 6, 10 or 11, and all of the CDs/DVDs I am using have successfully installed on other machines. With Fedoras 4, 5 and 6, it would crash as the opening screen would appear. With 10 and 11, the computer would not even detect that a bootable DVD is in the drive.
I have also tried unsuccessfully to find out if Fedora and any of these parts don't like each other so I wondering if anyone here might know anything that might be able to help me out.

Either something is wrong with boot setup in BIOS, or your 10 and 11 DVD's are not burned right, or your DRD-ROM/RW does not like 10 and 11 DVD's.

I do not see other option.
