[ILUG-BOM] Asrock MB refuses Mandrake.

Hello All,

Mandrake 10.1 does not install on the Asrock 845 chipset P 4i45 GV mobo. 
On booting from the first CD, it gave the initial 2 boot options of 
direct install/upgrade or custom. Then the first loading of the kernel 
starts and then there is a screen with a blue title bar and a task bar 
saying "Welcome to Mandrake...." Thats it. The system does not move 
further. Even Ctrl+Alt+Del does not reboot the system.

To cross check linux compatibility with this mobo, live Knoppix 3.2 was 
tried and it booted fine and gave me the desktop and even played mp3s 
from the hdd. In case this may be of any help, the first line in the 
knoppix boot up text messages was "PCI Device 00:f1.1 not available due 
to conflicts". Any clues?
