Mandrake 9.1

I don't know why I 'm having so many problems installing MD 9.1, MD 9.0 installes and runs perfectly, but when installing MD 9.1 it hangs or I get kernel panic, when it installes it all looks OK, apart from when trying to exceute openoffice 1.0.1 it looks as it starts and then dies, that is 7 times out of ten, the other 3 times works OK, the same goes for other programmes.

My configuration is:

ASUS DDR Mother board
P4 Celeron 1.7 G
512 MB DDR ram
40GB IBM Hard Disk hda1
40GB Maxtor hda8
Nivida Gforce 64MB Display card
52X samsung CD Rom

Any Ideas ?

Is the memory fully recognized? Mine only recognizes 860 out of 2048. Iadded mem=2048M to the append line in lilo....never leave off the "M" in that on mdk 9.1 --- It wouldn't boot for me without that M.
