I'm trying to install RH 7.2 on this low end mobo without any success.
INstall crashes after starting anaconda. Any inputs?

Try disabling any power saving options in BIOS - this worked on an
SIS630 board I have on one of my machines. Also, I'm a bit suspicious
of the built in network in this chipset - I had very bad interactions
between it and ncpfs (like kernel oops) with 2.4.x kernels.
