Fedora installation problems

I seem to be having all sorts of installation problems.

First, I do the check of disk 1 and the computer crashes. If I do the check on another computer, it seems to be ok and the checksum was ok before I burned it. When I install, I get all the options, but when it goes to write it, it crashes with a note about a null pointer to the kernal along with some other machine code type things.

It's odd that the check works ok on one machine and not the other.

Any idea what could be wrong with the machine? I actually reformatted the hard drive so everything is clean. I had problems with upgrading to Windows XP a few years ago and had to return to 98 and brought XP back to the store.

I'm using a computer bought from Cybermax and the board is MS-6167.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Can you use another cdrom drive for the installation? It may be the problem.

I just tried using the other cd rom drive and still got errors. I got a kernal panic when trying to install and it mentions a null pointer to the kernal and an error with virual memory.

The computer was acting pretty wacky before I bought the new one so a circuit could be fried or something.
