Installation Issues with FC4 and Ubuntu 6.06

Hi all,

I succesfully installed fc4 on my old pc in the past several times without any problems. but now on my new PC, i am unable to install either fc4 or ubuntu.

I have a winXP partition and i boot with the fc4 install disk. i press enter to start the install.

it says loading vmlinuz....

loading initrd.img........ (i don't remember its name exactly)

thats where it stops. it just hangs there. so i need to press the reset button and this happens always.

and with ubuntu, i have the 6.06 install cd. when i boot and select "start or install ubuntu", and then after showing the loading screen for a few seconds, it goes to the shell (busybox if i remember correctly) and says "can't access tty; job control turned off".

i have succesfully installed these two version on my old PC. it was a P4 system with a ide hdd. the new pc is a pentium D system and sata hdd. is this an issue with the processor being dual core or the sata hdd??

someone please help...
