System is Asus P4P800 MB, P4 2.8GHz, 1 GB memory, 2 seagate 18GB scsi drives on Adaptec 39320D (not configured as raid), one 80GB IDE drive as master on primary IDE interface, Ricoh CD R/W & NEC DVD R/W as master and slave on secondary interface, Radeon 9700 video, onboard sound and lan (3Com 3C390[not listed]). Installing from CD drive, at wits end, any help or thoughts appreciated.

If you're booting the install from DVD:

1 Make sure you're booting the 32bit version and not the 64bit version.
("Side A" should be up in the drive).

2 Choose safe settings and add this to the boot prompt:
"enableapic"

and see what happens.
