I had this problem a 430TX motherboard, it would boot windows95 fine,
NT4 would boot but the keyboard didn't work (important), but Linux just
did a quick reboot after loading the kernel. Come to find out that the
bios had a bug (amibios) in the keyboard initialization, and had to be
flash upgraded.

The upgrade only requires downloading the image and using a boot disk
to install it. Check with your motherboard manufacturer's website or
call the computer retailer you bought it from.
