So I bought one of these and I can't install 5.4R on it.

I get about 7/8ths the way through the kernel and it just stops and the 
box is frozen from that point on. I tried booting it from CDROM and a 
USBFlash that I used to boot/install another box and I get the same 

6.0R installs on it, but if you have the watchdog timer on it reboots 
itself :) I am not really ready to move anything to 6.0 so it would be 
really cool to figure out whats not working.
