Thumbs up Linux Installation get stuck on first screen

Hi all!

My pc was dual boot : opensuse 11.0 and windows.
After my hard disc crashed I have replaced it with new one .
I have two hard discs (the O.S's are installed on the first one) .
At the moment HardDisc A does not have jumper(should be the master).
First I have installed XP 64 bit on HardDisc A .
When I have tried to install opensuse/fedora/ubuntu/mint
all got stuck on first installation screen.

Any Ideas ?

Hardware configuration :
AMD athalon 64 bit 3200
Memory : 1GB Kingston
MainBoard :gigabyte GA-k8nf-9
Display adapter :ATI RADEON X300
HardDisc A, 200G (Win and Linux) WesternDigital
HardDisc B, 150G WesternDigital

Thanks !
