New linux Red Hat User, Need help on my Asus MOB

Hey Everyone,
I am sure that this is far from the first time you have seen a post like this and will be far from the last time. As usual when I put something together, it never goes completely right. I have a Asus A7S266 board. It refuses to let me run a Red Hat linux install. I tried 7.3 and 9. Neither will work. I keep getting an error message saying that" install aborted abnormally", "kill signal 11". I heard many rumors that my board needs an actual driver in order to do this install. I knwo I have an old board but it's what I could scrap together from free parts.

Any help at all would be widely appreciated.

i had this problem with redhat several times. sometimes it worked sometimes it didnt, i just had to keep installing until it worked. this is the reason i run gentoo now because the last 5 times i tried to install 7.3 it wouldnt work. i have an ASUS mobo (different model) but i didnt install anything special to get it to work (when it worked).
