Machine hard locks after trying to detect hardware. I suspect the outdated
BIOS and buggy DMA support.
CD drive is a combo thing.

MDK 10 also hard locks when trying to access the CD-Rom drive.
RH 9 hard locked on this machine when trying to write a CD with DMA enabled.
No problem with the Knoppix rescue CD:
Linux Knoppix 2.4.20-xfs #1 SMP Mit Jan 29 18:47:59 CET 2003 i686 AMD
Duron(tm) processor AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux

Will look into a BIOS upgrade and see if that is part of the problem.
