I just had the same problem installing 5.1 on an intel D865GL motherboard with
2.4 celeron, two maxtor 120gb 133 hard drives with 133 adapter, 512 ecc
ram(should be non-ecc I think). The floppy's didn't seem to have the bus
driver I needed so I used the 5.1 CD to set up. User directories are on
separate drive. I have had no problems for five days now.
