It seems to be a problem with the old 2.0.x kernel used for slink. Some
Athlon specific things I guess. I did not solve the problem with slink -
I switched to potato and it works.

It should be possbile to get a newer kernel and use it at install. But I
am not experienced with this... I stopped trying with slink as fast as
potato was in the 2nd test cycle.
