1) No it should be disabled.
2) Can't be the processor, i've got the same one.
3) Where did you get your CD's from ?

4) Did you check the md5sum on the CDs if you downloaded them?

the cd's work i've installed it on several other computers.. well the weirdest thing is that my MSI mainboard has usb 2.0 and 6 ports when all 6 are enabled even rh 7.3 install doesn't start but even disabling them still doesn't change anything bout mandrake it stops just after:
Embedded ExtINT on CPU#0
POSIX conformance testing by UNIFIX
ESR value ...sth enabling vector: 0000000002

Still looks like a hardware problem, Maybe start a new thread on hardware forum on this site, elaborate in first post on things discussed here above ( pnp, install ok on other comp, usb, rh7.3, etc. )
