Hi everyone,

Thanks for all the input I received!  This is what I learned:
    1)   When you have 128 MB of SRAM and the on-board video takes 16 MB 
of it you
           can't do X windows (i.e. Graphical installation)
    2)   It is key to burn as slow a CD as possible.  In my case it 
works ok with 4X speed.

I tried a minimal installation on an older disk I had laying around and 
I am very happy to say
we have life!  I will now purge myself of that Windows 2000 installation 
and build an everything
installation.  I am confident that it will be fine!
