I am using an Asus m/b A7N-266VM. it uses nVidia nForce graphics and works fine with Windows XP. the processor is Duron 800 with DDR 128 MB.
i was able to install Red Hat Linux 7.2 as well. but Linux crashes soon after the kernel is booted. the error message is simply that 'the item does not fit into memory' (rather cryptic, i must admit).
a few days back i replaced RHL with Mandrake 8.2. Mandrake could only print a nice, 5-screen long stack trace upon booting. more importantly, Mandrake does not even boot into a shell when i tried the failsafe option.
any assistance from you in sorting out the mess will be greatly appreciated.
