Install trouble - BIOS ?

I have an old Pentium II (266 MHz) which runs Windows 2000 OK (slowly!),
so I thought I could use it as a mail server. However when I boot up
with the Ubuntu CD, I get :
[4294667.296000] ACPI : Unable to locate RSDP
We then go to the install screen, and
Loading essential drivers... ok
Mounting root file system...
It hangs there for a long time, and then goes to a black screen with
[198.393748] hdc : drive not ready for command
I suspected it might be a BIOS problem, but I am unable to find an
update for this old box. Any bright ideas for a workaround ?
