Problem on boot with VIA KT133

i got a used MSI-6330 board with an Athlon 1000. Now there is a problem
boot time (see boot messages below). Does any one of you have what the
actual problem is (and how to solve it, perhaps)? I tried it with the
installation kernel of SuSE 8.1 and with version 2.4.19 but none worked.
noapic option does not help. Perhaps the SuSE kernel lacks the VIA
southbridge patch (and the 2.4.19 as well?). If yes, where do i get it?

Thanks in advance,


Here is the boot message:
