The linux kernel appears to be suggesting you boot with the "irqpoll"
When you pop the cdrom in and boot, you'll initially get a splash screen
I think you press <F6> to pass options to the kernel. You should try
passing it "irqpoll". This apparently doesn't always work, but give it a
bash and let us know how you get on.
