Hi List,

I just got my HP Pavilion zv5188EA py mail today... Hoorrayy....
It has 512MB RAM and an Athlon 64 3200+, and it comes with XP Home
So, naturally I wanted to install 5.2.1-Release from CD Rom. The CD Boots fine,
but no matter what option I choose at the Boot menu (with/without ACPI, Safe
Mode), the machine boots about 5 seconds... and then It just powers down???

When I boot Debian Linux 3.0/i386 it works fine with 2.2 kernel,
bf24-kernel-image freezes also.

Any suggestions & experiences??

Many thanks in advance,

Jan Lentfer
