[FC2] Can't install on Dell Optiplex

Model is GX260, BIOS is A06.  Video adapters include an Intel 82845 and a
Radeon 7000.  NIC is an Intel Pro/1000MT.  Audio is SoundMAX integrated.
It also has a USB cordless mouse.

The install disk crashes immediately on boot and leaves the following
information on the screen (hopefully with no trascription error).  The
only way to reboost is to hit reset or power-cycle.  I tried acpi=no
as a kernel option, to no avail.

Thanks for any assistance.
