Ok, by reading help pages i figured out the problem.
The kernel (2.4.20-20.8) doesn't like the VIA KT400 chipsets on my Asus 8X7V mobo
causing a problem with the AGP slot. reasoning behind the 3 beeps.
So anyways.. i need to update the kernel. here is where you guys/gals coming.
I know which kernel i need... and have downloaded two of them
so which one do i use?
AMD XP 2100 (1.7)
DDR PC2700 512MB
Maxtor 40 GB
GeForce 3 TI200 128mb
Asus 8X7V mobo, KT400 chips
if you need any other infomation about my pc let me know...
