Mandriva Installation


Hi!
I'm tryng to install mandriva LE2005.The Boot operation goes well,I press enter to let the installation begin,but after a while the screen becomes black and the PC freezes.
So I try to launch the installation process using text mode in order to see what the hell will happen.PC freezes again,but now i know that the problem regards "Initializing cryptographic API".
So,what options should I pass to the kernel to allow the installation process to start correctly?
no acpi didn't work!
Thanx for your answers.

What would you like to know about my PC?
No strange hardware...I didn't find any problem on installing other distros (Slackware,Gentoo,Suse,mandrake).
So what?
