Help with Mandrake 8.1 Installation

I have been trying to install Mandrake 8.1 for the past week. The installation goes fine till the point of X Configuration. A window appears asking me whether i want to keep the setting or not and on clicking either yes or the no, my computer freezes. The graphics in the background get distorted and......
I have tried this several times and i yet end up freezing my comp.

The system specs are:
- P3 800
- Integrated Video card
-Integrated Audio card
-385 MB RAM pc 133
-Sony 16x DVD ROM
-Panasonic 8*4*32 Writer
20 GB 7200 RPM WD harddisk.

Would it be that my integrated video card is the problem here?
Any help will be highly appreciated!
