Motherboard is a Chaintech S1689 (Socket 939) with AMD-64 3200 CPU and 1024MB Ram.

The FC4 64 bit DVD booted and then promptly froze with a creen full of text, including something about a 'Bad Panic'

I found that by turning ACPI off (linux acpi=off) during boot solved this problem.

Currently installing 64-bit FC4 on this machine. I will update this thread when it completes (or doesn't)!

======================
Well, install completed but following reboot, computer failed to load the kernel and just hung. Install of 32 bit FC4 on same hardware was seemingly successful, but I can't get the network hardware to communicate. Plugged a pci lan card in which worked immediately. Something weired about this chipset I think. Given up on this board. Gigabyte board coming tomorrow. :mad:
