This is my first Linux use/install, and I am not literate, so this is quite
a challenge/exciting, as well as frustrating.

Do you have the same results using Ubuntu 8.04? No, installs
Have you upgraded the BIOS? Yes, all up to date
Have you tried using the Ubuntu 8.10 Alternate CD? If you mean 32b, yes.
Same problem
I know you want a server, but it's just to be sure everything goes ok using
Ubuntu 8.10 with an alternate install I am installing 8.04 Server - although
completed but failed to reboot after install.  Just re-installing but with
other HDs removed.  If it fails then I will resort to Desktop version at
8.04 64b....
Did you checked you MD5 checksum? No.  How?
Would it be possible to run a memtest? Yes, all OK


I think there has much to do with the Gigabyte MB as anything else.  As they
told me they do not test their boards with Linux.  Sent me to AMD.  They
were very dismissive.  Won't buy another Gigabyte MB.
