Question 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!

what sort of graphics card is it? have you checked to see if it is supported? go to and look for it there (although a definitive list).

Kewl site Webtoe. Did not know that i could find such a site to look on hardware support. However, I checked on the listings on that Linux hardware support.
I have a SIS 630 Chipset and the listings do only show SIS 620 Chipset and the 6326.
So i guess that is the problem for the problem i am facing. Incase u have any other suggestions on this, plss lemme know.
Thanks for the help!
