USB issue with chaintech vnf4 ultra motherboard

I have had been trying to get multiple distro's of linux to install on my custom built pc to no avail. They all either lock up or move so slowly that they might as well be locked up. The strange thing is that if i turn off the USB support in the bios (phoenix), it runs fine. I have installed a few distro's this way, but then when I have turned the USB support back on, they don't boot, or once again move so slowly that they might as well not (I did this with Ubuntu and though it didn't lock up, it was still booting over an hour later). I was wondering if anyone has seen any problem like this before, because I haven't really been able to find any solutions searching through the forums.

Computer Specs:
AMD Athlon 64 3200+ s.939
Chaintech VNF4 Ultra Motherboard
Nvidia 6600gt
1gb pc3200 ram

Distro's Tried:
Mandrake 10
Suse 10
Fedora Core 3 (both x86 and x86_64 versions)
Ubuntu 5.10 (both x86 and x86_64 versions)
Knoppix (Just to attempt not installing)
Slackware 10.2 (very strange...installs fine, but usb drives don't work...running on 2.4 kernel)
