    i just bought a new system with AMD Athlon(tm)3200+ 64 processor with ASUS's A8N-VM-UAYGZ and i feel terrible because when i tried installing Lnux,it didn't support anyone i tried.i first of all tried RedHat then Fedora then Gentoo then finally UBUNTU and not even anything installed and what more it did ,it crashed the windows tooo and all my documents..!:cry:
    I don't know whats the problem..i have just called the operator to see it...
    But it would be fine if any of you can give me some insight..!

    Motherboard more specifically is Socket 939,nvidia GeForce6100 + nForce410,2000 MT Dual channel DDR..!

    Are you trying to install full 64 bit support or just 32 bit support. They are usually on two different install cds.
