I've got an extra Asus A7N8X-E mobo I'm trying to bring 6.2 up on.
   AMD 3200+, Barton
   2G PC-3200 rom, 1G OCZ and 1G Kingston valueram
   Seagate ES ST3250820NS Sata drives jumpered for 1.5GB only
   NVidia FX5600 AGP display adapter

I checked the archives and found comments about disabling ACPI, which I've

I've tried turning off the on-board SATA controller and using an Adaptec 
SATA controller with no improvement.  I've also tried slowing the clock and

Is this basically a bad idea, or is there some piece of the puzzle I'm 
missing?  Any help would be much appreciated.
