I can confirm that on Cyrixes having the cache disabled solves problems. I
ran into a similar problem, I got as far as the second installation screen,
and then dinstall starts to segfault. For the record, I had to disable BOTH
caches, internal and external. Surprisingly, the machine didn't run *much*

I could be helpful to put that information on the boot disk.
